Tennant/Wallace Architects AIA PA is a full service architectural firm located in Manchester, NH.  The firm was formed in 1991 as an outgrowth of six years of Peter F. Tennant AIA and Thomas A. Wallace AIA working together at the firm of Ingram/Wallace Architects AIA PA. After a six year process of partial retirement, Tom Wallace fully retired from architectural practice in 2008. This transition involved Peter Tennant assuming the role of president in 2007 and maintaining the commitment to client care that has been the hallmark of the firm since its' inception.

Although the office has addressed a wide variety of project types during its history, ranging from small scale residential additions up to multimillion dollar hospital projects, publicly funded and commercial projects are the predominant focus. Many of our projects over the years have involved working closely with a diverse range of committees and departments to advance the Clients' realizations for their projects.

With nearly four decades of combined experience, Tennant/Wallace Architects has consistently:

  • Listened to the CLIENTS needs.

  • Maintained direct involvement by the principals.

  • Completed work when needed by the client for the agreed to fee.

  • Maintained a commitment to develop an exceptional solution to ALL projects
    (no matter what it takes).

  • Met  budgetary needs AND functional requirements AND provided a facility clients are proud of.

Tennant/Wallace Architects has several design awards including an AIA New Hampshire Honor Award for the Concord Intermodal Facility.

A commitment to responsible environmental design has been an integral part of the design approach since the firm's inception. To this end, Peter Tennant, president of Tennant/Wallace Architects is a LEED Accredited Professional.  Tennant/Wallace has a demonstrated ability to address sustainability, energy efficiency, functionality, aesthetics, and appropriateness to a given site, while simultaneously meeting the clients' budget parameters.

Tennant/Wallace Architects is selective about the projects that they undertake in order to be able to meet the needs of the client and assure that the client will be dealing directly with a principal in the firm throughout the project.
