Tamie Glass and Uli Dangel have been practicing in Austin, Texas since they relocated from London in 2005. Their complementary expertise in architecture and interior design allows them to comprehensively address projects at a range of scales.
Tamie Glass, ASID
Uli Dangel, AIA, Dipl.-Ing. Architekt
Tamie brings a European sensibility and an international perspective informed by an East Texas upbringing to the direction of architectural interior projects at Glass and Dangel.
Her intercontinental career launched with the creation of corporate identity projects for the Mercedes-Benz brand of DaimlerChrysler, Germany, followed by four years of experience in London providing concept design, design development and construction documentation for top firms Virgile & Stone as well as Conran and Partners. Her expertise extends from interior showroom signage and high-end hospitality and retail projects throughout the EU and Asia to wellness, corporate, and residential designs in the US.
Tamie’s assertive and confident approach consistently pushes the boundaries of how space, materials and their arrangement can surmount the most difficult and demanding challenges of commercial and residential design. She leads the firm’s development of interiors that are conceptually strong, architecturally unique, and unforgettably linked to clients’ brands and identities.
Tamie excels at identifying trends, recognizing the convergence of ideas, and synthesizing the best elements of traditional and unconventional approaches into a coherent whole.
Tamie is an Associate Professor and Director of the Interior Design Program at the University of Texas at Austin where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in interior design and architecture. Her synergetic approach to teaching and professional practice addresses her interests in environmental branding and identity, materials and detailing, and design issues related to human behavior. She is the recipient of a 2011 ASID Educator Design Excellence Award that nationally recognizes educators actively engaged in professional practice, as well as the 2014 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award by The University of Texas System.

Raised in his native Germany, Uli brings progressive design skills and invaluable expertise to Glass and Dangel with an architectural point of view that culminated from being educated in both Europe and the US.
His professional career led him to London, where he spent four years designing projects throughout the EU for internationally renowned architecture firms Foster and Partners as well as Grimshaw. His design and construction experience spans a wide variety of typologies from specialized research and education centers to hospitality and master planning projects. He contributed at all levels of the design process from highly conceptual studies to providing design-build construction administration.
Uli is a registered architect in Texas, Germany, and the UK. His designs are characteristically sensitive to their surroundings, energy conscious, and technically advanced. His disciplined approach is well appreciated as he leads the firm’s architectural design development and project administration.
He continues to explore his Germanic roots and love for rational, sustainable architecture by ongoing research into the small Austrian province of Vorarlberg, which has developed simple, yet sophisticated timber construction methods over the last fifty years. His books "Sustainable Architecture in Vorarlberg: Energy Concepts and Construction Systems" and "Turning Point in Timber Construction: A New Economy" were published by Birkhäuser Basel in 2010 and 2017 respectively.
Uli is an Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin where he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in design, construction, architectural detailing, and structural design. He is the recipient of numerous teaching awards, including the 2007 Texas Exes Teaching Award, the 2007-2008 ACSA/AIAS New Faculty Teaching Award, and the 2009 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award.
