Tim Cuppett is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, School of Architecture. After an internship in San Francisco, he has had the luxury of residing and practicing in Austin for over three decades.
Cuppett is a registered Architect and Interior Designer. After a decade of working for a large commercial firm, Cuppett began his practice focused on single-family homes. He led the firm to multiple design awards from AIA Austin and the Texas Society of Architects. His work has been published in local and regional magazines including Southern Living’s “Best New Home 2014”. In 2016 Cuppett welcomed Dave Kilpatrick as a Partner in the firm. Together their homes have been featured in six of the last ten AIA Austin homes tours.
Dave Kilpatrick is a graduate of the University of Texas, School of Architecture and a Central Texas native. Before joining Tim Cuppett Architects in 2011, he spent time drawing houses in Southern California and west of Austin. Somewhere during that time, he took a sabbatical to swing a hammer in South Texas. Dave joined Tim as a partner in 2016 and was flattered to have his name added to the masthead in 2021.
As a child, Dave spent hours in the family gallery and frame shop building chipboard models and hawking refrigerator-quality paintings to the gallery’s patrons. Other after-school days were spent at the family’s ad agency watching the graphic designers create page layouts. It is likely, these experiences, that shaped his affinity for composing architecture from a graphic perspective.
When he is not working, Dave’s wife, three kids and perpetual tinkering on his central Austin, mid-century home keep him very busy. He also sneaks out to the golf course from time to time.
Dave is registered to practice Architecture in Texas and Minnesota.
