TP architects is an architecture and interior design studio based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Established in 2016 by Arnold Tejasurya and Jessica Pranata, the portfolio varied with a broad range of projects across residential, commercial, hospitality and workplace projects.
We listen, research and challenge - best described the studio’s body of work. Pursuing design with intent. Looking at the bigger picture, by considering the little details. Creating a better quality of life by combining architecture and interior design, TP architect’s work is a reflection of harmony and simplicity, designed to be experienced.
Designing with identity and consistency - “All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable” – Frank Lloyd Wright. Just like a custom suit meticulously tailored to fit the owner, our concept in architecture has to embody the owner’s lifestyle; their budgets, habits and needs. Because no one is ever the same, none of our projects are the same. They all have been developed to meet our certain standard and personalized thoughtfully to your suiting.
Attention to detail is what make good become great - Everybody can design a table, the difference in the outcomes will come from the material, structure and joineries used. We challenge ourselves and with our experienced team we are able to give you the best design solution. We take time to consider all the elements, right through the smallest one. Because those little things matter, after all, it is all those little things that create the big picture.
Make it simple but remarkable - It’s easy to be noticed when you scream out loud. A crazy shaped building can easily catch your attention, but a simple white building can tell you more. Each element - the texture, furniture, window, even the tree - is just how we meant to be.
Well considered design improves our lives - White fabric sofas are nice, until you spill coffee on them. To us, design is not only how it looks or how it feels, but also how it works. It is the combination of those elements that will determine the quality of the design. Every outcome should be grounded by purpose, so we can create a space for you to be in, live in; not just to look at.
We are not a one-trick pony - “Architects have to dream. We have to search for our Atlantises, to be explorers, adventurers, and yet to build responsibly and well.” – Renzo Piano. We are design enthusiasts and part-time wanderlusters. We believe that travelling is the best way to learn. Exploring new places gives us the euphoric feeling while stretches our mind to a new dimension of endless possibilities.
