Who We Are

KPF é uma única prática arquitetônica e unificada
focada em projetos de edifícios de todos os tipos e escalas,
e em todas as regiões geográficas do mundo.

Nossos projetos incluem as torres mais altas do mundo, e vãos mais longos, programas mais variados e formas mais inventivas. O que une nosso trabalho - e que motiva os nossos esforços - é o objetivo de encontrar a solução mais inteligente para cada projeto que realizamos. Acreditamos que o melhor projeto é o produto de uma pesquisa de mente aberta que não está sobrecarregado por preconceitos ou fórmulas estilísticas.


Our buildings make contributions to the built environment
that go beyond their physical footprint.

The aspirations that shape our design include optimizing programmatic functions, strengthening the urban context, promoting sustainable environments, advancing the commercial success of development strategies, and creating beautiful buildings that reflect and inspire the communities they serve. We work closely with our clients to balance these forces and to capitalize on the benefits of multidisciplinary thinking.



In order to support these aims, the firm is organized
as a collaborative group of diverse talents.

Our best designs occur when individuals come together, challenging each other to invent new techniques and search for new expressions. Each project is expected to advance the larger practice, while answering to a very particular set of individual parameters. In our studios, passionate young architects work alongside the most experienced hands, blending wisdom with fresh inspiration.

One Firm

The firm consists of over 700 staff led by 34 principals,
with offices in New York, London,
Shanghai, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Abu Dhabi.

All of the principals convene regularly to ensure the cohesiveness of philosophy and share knowledge about their work. Each principal understands and participates in the global breadth of the practice.

Exchange of staff between offices is a regular practice. Often a single project will avail itself of expertise residing in multiple offices – working together as a single team – in order to derive maximum benefit from the firm's broad base of knowledge.



An important part of our method
is collaborating with clients and
listening effectively to their needs.

The client is often defined as more than a single entity, including owners, users, and public officials. We engage these groups through our comparative method, in which alternative solutions are considered and evaluated. This open-source approach allows for broad discussion and participation.



We make quality buildings by focusing on
every project from concept to completion,
from the “big idea” to the finest detail.

Our belief is that an ambitious concept is only successful when richly composed and well-executed. Focused on the art and science of architecture, we always pursue a high level of detail to elevate our designs in terms of both beauty and practicality.

The results of this philosophy have manifested in KPF Making, a traveling exhibit and forthcoming book, which highlights our firm's commitment to architectural craft from the scale of the low-rise neighborhood to the supertall tower.

Our goal is to create healthy environments, both inside and out,
that enhance physical, cognitive and social well-being.

Drawing on research and real-world application, we consider space, form, color and texture to design for wellness at all scales, from the urban realm to the interior room.

Underlining our approach is the integration of nature with architecture with attention to air quality, access to light and landscape balanced with opportunity for activity, community and connection.
