PLP Architecture is a London-based group of architects, designers and thinkers 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.

While they bring a global perspective to their projects, their design resolutions are delivered through an understanding of local conditions. Design challenges are viewed not as a series of constraints but rather as opportunities for exciting, environmentally responsive architecture and sustainable urban design.

The foundation of their work lies in a commitment to the quality of life in the city, a delight in the handling of material, space and light and an optimism about architecture’s potential to enrich society.
