The Practice

Tan Architecture is a small practice dedicated to quality outcomes. We excel at finding simple and understated solutions to any design brief.

Our size is our advantage. Every project is directly managed by the Principal, so every client gets top-level advice and expertise. Integrity and reliability are core tenets of our operation.

We are practical. We pay attention to budgets, and we understand construction. We want our buildings to be functional and unobtrusive while providing wonderful spaces to live, work, and play in.
