Since 1996, TKO Structure has been designing and building highly functional and beautiful outdoor structures that help to define, enhance and add value to residential and commercial properties. O’Rourke studied at Otis LA and graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York City with a degree in communication design. He and his team recently finished a spectacular penthouse deck, designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios, for an historic estate in Beverly Hills. Currently they are working on the new corporate headquarters of Skechers in Manhattan Beach.

INFLUENCES

“Much of the inspiration for my work comes from my love of the Arts & Crafts Movement, with its unabashed adherence to solid design and workmanship. Giants in the movement–Gustav Stickley, Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene & Greene–were of particular inspiration. I also admire Danish modern design, with its clean minimalism, and Japanese/Asian-inspired work, which tends to promote a balance of design with nature and its surroundings.”

TAKING PRIDE

“There is an innate reward from being at the heart of a process in which an inert assortment of materials is forged into a handsome, well-designed, functioning and pleasurable addition to someone’s life and surroundings.”
