Arman Tolentino, LEED AP


Arman’s passion for quality urban design has translated well to the types of projects he has worked on since joining Smallwood in 2012, particularly the large-scale, mixed use projects in urban cores. In addition to mixed use, Arman has contributed to the design and management of architectural services for Multifamily, Office, Retail, Hospitality, Performing Arts, Convention Center, and Parking projects.

Arman excels at coordination of and communication with all team members. He also pays special attention to details and collaborates with the design team to create solutions that not only meet code and accessibility guidelines, but also the clients' budget, schedule and design goals. Arman is passionate about boiling down complex problems into practical, yet aesthetically-pleasing, design solutions that improve the user experience. Arman takes pride in conveying these solutions via easy-to-understand methods of communication, both verbally and through drawings, diagrams, and construction documents.

The JW Marriott Nashville turned out to become not only Nashville’s latest and greatest hotel to stay in, but it also delivers a serious design statement in the Nashville Cityscape.”
