“To you (Taki Tsomides) and your professional staff we will ever be grateful. Certainly the two plaques make even one more reason why New England Deaconess is so appreciative of your many traits, talents, and gifts. How fortunate our Planning Committee was years ago in their selection of the most creative and competent architect in this country. Truly, this building reflects your unbelievable abilities. Your attention to detail, both interior and exterior, was the word-of-the-day expressed by so many of our visitors. You have left a wonderful legacy to our men and women who have the privilege to reside in this beautiful place as their retirement home.”

-The Late Reverend Guy S. Morrison, President, 
New England Deaconess Association, Concord, MA

“The architect for the project (The Skilled Care Center at The Cedars) is Constantine “Taki” Tsomides, a Saco native and Bowdoin College graduate.  Broder called him "one of the nation's premier designers of facilities for the aged."  The new building is only the first part of the Jewish Home's Master Plan.”

-Portland Press Herald/Evening Express

“Today the Atrium at Cedars reached “substantial completion”. The building is beautifully designed and well built. We will have set the standard for retirement living for years to come. It was delivered to us as promised and on time. I am enormously grateful to everyone on the development team and the development committee who made this possible.”

“There is no one who comes to The Cedars who doesn’t speak of the welcoming, warm feeling that is evident in each of our three entities. Everyone notices the natural light, consistent with Taki’s designs, as well as the design that’s specific to seniors. That is evident in every room- not only to the health professional but to the resident and family. We have been the recipient of awards both national and international.”

-Kathryn Callnan, President and CEO, The Jewish Home for Aged
The Cedars, Portland, ME

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent job your company did on the design of the RiverMead Retirement Community project in Peterborough, New Hampshire. We appreciate the project being completed within budget and ahead of schedule, but more so we appreciate the wonderful comments made by our residents about the design layout and overall amenities.”

-Edward J. Kelly, Founding President, 
New Life Management & Development, Inc., Mt. Laurel, NJ

“I have had the opportunity to work with Tsomides Associates for 32 years on projects totaling over 21M. During this period, Taki has demonstrated abilities in master planning within an existing campus as well as renovation of a new complex structure with one goal in mind- to design innovative and exciting architectural spaces in a contemporary fashion with traditional architectural overtones which the Residents can relate to. One of their greatest strengths is the ability to work with different building types; creating exciting and meaningful space; each distinctively different from the other but appropriate for its functional use.” 

-Barbara A. Doyle, President/ CEO
Carleton-Willard Village, Bedford, MA

“In appreciation to Constantine Tsomides for your vision, architectural design and implementation that has rendered Llewsac Lodge into its new reincarnation, we thank you. As a result of your vision, we have a beautiful new home in which to live and work. We all wish to extend our sincere gratitude.”

-Plaque received from the Residents, Officers, and Staff of Llewsac Lodge and Carleton-Willard Village, Bedford, MA

“Over these many years I have thoroughly enjoyed the professional relationship I have with Taki. He quickly became a valued partner in our project and designed a beautiful and extremely functional facility which opened in August, 2007. We are very proud of our community which owes much of its success to the vision, professionalism and devotion of Constantine Tsomides.”

We feel so blessed to be able to serve our seniors in this light-filled and spacious environment. One look at the skylight and it is easy to see why. Our award winning architect, Constantine Tsomides designed this warm, uplifting and healing sanctuary. It features dedicated cardiovascular, mobility and strength training areas. It offers the very latest in diagnostic and assistive therapy technology and holistic programming.”

-The Sam L. Cohen Rehabilitation Center, Portland, ME


“I truly feel that our award-wining community would not be what it is today without Taki. He takes a personal type of ownership for his projects. He takes tremendous pride in all of his accomplishments and his attention to every detail is impressive. He was present at all committee meetings and every special meeting associated with the project as well as our opening and dedication celebrations.”
