PLP Architecture is a London-based group of architects, designers and researchers who value the transformative role of ideas and the capacity for architecture to inspire. The practice is led by a group of partners including Lee Polisano, David Leventhal, Karen Cook and Ron Bakker, who formerly were in charge of KPF’s London office for over 20 years.
Although we draw from a rich history and experience of working together on projects around the world, the studio, founded in 2009, has a culture of a young start-up. We value innovation and creativity as we strive to test limits. We produce intelligent, exciting and ground-breaking designs through a continual commitment to social, economic and environmental ideals. The office shuns preconceptions, fixed architectural styles or methods, allowing each project to become a unique opportunity to research, analyse and creatively respond to the brief, site and context.
The foundation of our work lies in a commitment to the quality of life in the city, a delight in the handling of material, space and light and optimism about architecture’s potential to enrich our society.
