TECTONICS is a design led architectural practice based in East London.

With extensive experience in residential projects, Tectonics have completed urban site in-fills, bespoke alterations to traditional London housing stock and complete new-build properties. The practice is also involved in cultural and community buildings including various international planning proposals.

Sustainability is at the heart of the approach to each project, incorporating the best use of natural light, ventilation and solar gain, good quality materials and reduced energy consumption techniques wherever possible.


Founded in 2001 by director Bernard Tulkens, the practice draws from his experience gained since 1988 at practices such as David Chipperfield Architects and Kohn Pedersen Fox.

The studio’s diverse team of architects and designers offer a wealth of experience and skills, able to cover all stages of a project from concept to completion.
