TPFL Architects is an RIBA architectural design practice that strongly values high quality design, competing on a regional level based in North Kent. Located in Herne Bay on the Kent coast, the practice offers both architectural and planning expertise.
All our projects, from inception, are passionately crafted with digital technology to completion, ensuring delivery of quality with elaboration and augmentation of the design concept.
Our design process, in which we assess, evaluate and evolve concepts using computer based technologies, allows us to experiment, innovate and deliver architecture that balances a developed contextual response with strong functionality.
We are committed to delivering high-quality projects that present innovative design solutions and excellent value through careful control of cost and programme, ensuring client satisfaction.
For all projects undertaken, regardless of scale or budget, we strive to gain a clear understanding of our clients brief to define clear objectives and requirements. We spend time to work with our clients and specialist consultants to identify opportunities and investigate design options to produce an optimal design proposal.
We strive for simple, robust and subtle designs that work efficiently, have a clear interpretation of concept, are enjoyed by end users and contribute to the context of setting.
