We're on a mission


Tim Delhey Eian founded TE Studio in 2008 to offer holistic, performance-based design to residential clients in North America. At TE Studio, we feel that it is important to create buildings that deliver on many levels of design and performance, and provide real measurable value to our clients.

We are expert designers dedicated to beautiful, durable, functional, and earth-friendly home designs that offer healthy environments and economy to meet our client’s needs—both now and in the future.

We practice Passive House design–the world’s leading voluntary building energy standard focusing on superior energy efficiency and quality of life at low operating cost. While originating in Germany, the founders of Passive House were deeply inspired by the energy conservation movement in the U.S. in the 1970s. We feel that the availability of Passive House in the U.S represents a perfect blend of the American spirit of invention combined with German engineering. We adopted this world-class standard as soon as it was commercially available to provide our clients with measurable, leading edge performance and results. We have successfully designed Passive House homes in one of the most challenging climates on earth. We welcome the opportunity to do the same for you wherever you are.

TE Studio: Holistic design for sustainable homes.


We are practicing out of the TE Studio office in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, which was built-out and retrofit with Passive House components in 2014.
