With China’s ongoing urbanization, it’s cities will accommodate 1.3 billion people in 2025. With this rapid urban process, cities have ceased to evolve organically and require economically sustainable planning. We at Peddle Thorp believe that sustainable planning resulting in Low Carbon cities and promoting smart city development can evolve parallel to a better lifestyle for Chinese citizens. We nurture an integrated design approach informing our urban designs from the earliest stage on and to achieve the highest amount of knowledge integration into our projects.
Distinguished Architecture of any scale is the synthesis of teamwork and innovation, two essential ingredients that characterizes PTA’s eminent traditions. Our teams are led by knowledgeable designers, technical architects and experienced managers, sharing their diverse knowledge, essential to fostering each project’s excellence.
Innovation follows many leads from the integration of public concerns, to planning efficiency, to material technology. Whether rethinking sustainable city planning or the invention of new building typologies, PTA has a vested interest in the integration of expert knowledge in order to be ahead of its time.
Our interior design studio is focused on creating unique, timeless and elegant environments. As a strong group of multi-disciplinary designers and artists, we strive to forecast growing trends in the hospitality, commercial and residential sectors. Working closely with our architectural and engineering peers, from a project’s inception, we are able to create a truly cohesive, long lasting design for clients and operators alike. What sets us apart in this industry is our international design team, well versed in all areas of the design process.
We believe that design is a holistic approach, an approach that needs time to breathe and develop. No two projects are alike and each has a language of it’s own. We are inspired by local culture, a project’s location and it’s potential clientele. Working very closely with local artisans, suppliers and manufacturers we weave a story that can be told for years to come. Design is all about capturing a mood, setting the scene, creating an ambiance that provokes an emotional response. We want our interiors to be discovered, room by room, to inspire and to enchant.
At Peddle Thorp, we recognise that every project demands a unique response to a particular set of issues. These relate to site, brief, community, commercial drivers, climate and the creative response to the challenge by the designers and clients.
We recognise that the process of developing a project is a continual series of design choices to collectively create a successful outcome. Our role as architects is to use our experience and creativity to steer choices for the benefit of the client.
