The practice is led by 4 Principals with Alex Kibble as Managing Director. The day to day management of the practice is undertaken by the Principals and Practice Directors, ensuring projects achieve design, quality and financial targets and exceed client expectations.

Recognising the importance of strong leadership within the project teams, the practice has 7 Associate Directors and 5 Associates, drawn from across the spectrum of the skills within the office, representing the diversity of technical, design and management skills within the practice.


We provide a comprehensive range of architectural services, from project inception to completion. We have experience in projects with a wide range of construction value – both large and small. We balance the resource needs of all projects and have the capability to service complex projects with the appropriate resources.

TKD has a long and award winning track record in delivering environmentally and ecologically sustainable outcomes and we approach every project with the aim of maximising environmental and ecological sustainability. We also understand that the “greenest” building may be one that already exists, and have proven experience in breathing new life into existing buildings in innovative ways to ensure their functionality, appeal and use are maximised.

In July 2019, TKD Architects became a founding signatory of Architects Declare, Australia. We acknowledge the twin crises of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are the most serious issue of our time and that globally, buildings and construction play a major part, accounting for nearly 40% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst also having a significant impact on our natural habitats.

TKD Architects will promote and support the Architects Declare agenda through our projects and office practices.


TKD Architects delivers high quality contemporary design across a wide range of project sectors.

We believe in architecture that has a respect for history and a clarity of vision for the future.

Our Surry Hills office reflects the vision and profile of an evolving practice while providing a real sense of belonging and creativity for the whole TKD team. The light-filled converted warehouse has open, collaborative spaces as well as smaller, team meeting spaces. The aspirational single level workspace allows views throughout the space and touches of colour give it a warm, vibrant ambience.
