FKL architects is committed to contemporary design with a focus on the application of abstract ideas to built form. Each project is approached from first principles by responding to the specifics of site and program and formulating a singular concept that informs all aspects of the design. This individual concept is firmly rooted in the pragmatics of the project. We seek to condense ideas to their essentials, from the building form to the detail of junctions between materials with all decisions re-affirming and complementing the primary concept. The form and language of each project grows out of this approach leading to a diversity in the work, within a framework given by enduring interests; in space, atmosphere, assemblage, pattern, hierarchy, texture and materiality.
FKL is committed to a pragmatic, first principles approach to environmentally aware, energy efficient design. Avoiding mechanical or technological solutions where practical and focusing on prevention before cure. Our office is run on similar lines with all waste recycled and the environmental impact of travel offset.
