We are an architecture firm heavily influenced in both engineering and architecture thinking process. Both Kegan Tom and Richard Fe Tom have formal engineering education, civil and mechanical aerospace, respectively. Richard Fe Tom, the founder and principal of The Architecture Company, had his first degree and work experience in engineering and learned the benefits of systems thinking.
We apply systems thinking, the understanding of how actions influence one another as a whole, to create processes that wholistically improve our production and design. We apply checklists, mind mapping and systems thinking to all aspects from marketing, finance, design, documentation and construction administration.
We believe that taking care of business through systems thinking means more time for our clients.
