Our team of experienced architects and designers offer a great breadth of professional experience and trusted expertise.

The unique needs of our clients are met with an emphatic search for optimal design solutions. Through this method Tonkin Liu has developed a diverse portfolio of individually tailored, instantly recognisable, award winning work. We design landmark buildings, houses, civic spaces, bridges, and artworks. Each is a bespoke product of its unique context; finely tuned to the place it is sited, the people who will occupy it, and the culture that surrounds it.  Private, commercial, and public sector clients come to us with projects of widely varying typologies and sizes in the UK and abroad. As chartered members of the Royal Institute of British Architects, our dedicated team offers a great breadth of professional experience and trusted expertise.

We are proud to have won fifteen RIBA Awards, which recognise ‘the best architecture in the UK and around the world’. The studio was showcased in Taschen’s ‘40 Under 40’ book on the future of architecture, and in The Architecture Foundation’s ‘Guide to Britain’s Best Young Architectural Practices’. We have appeared in The Independent’s ‘The Faces To Watch’, and on ‘Grand Designs’ with the Camera Jewel House. Most recently, the Singing Ringing Tree was named one of the 21 British landmarks of the 21st Century.
