With a history dating back to 1950, CnT Architects is a legacy practice, an institution that transcends generations. Throughout this history, the firm has sustained a track record of award winning and widely published work.
The firm has evolved to its current structure: a practice passionate about design without being personality-centric. The practice is conceived as a non-hierarchical place, where the debate and exchange between autonomous design teams fuels its creative energy. A set of documented beacon values on the imageability of architectural space, meaning through inhabitation, and the dialogues of practice anchor the firm’s design culture.
CnT eschews “an architect’s architecture” of visual imagery, aiming to produce spatial orders that entice patterns of inhabitation where memories of emancipated experience accrue meaning over time. This philosophy is captured by the tag line in the firm’s logo, “Enrich Life Through Architecture.”
