TFA Architects was formed in 1998 by the merger of Tom Freake Associates and Ken Bruce Chartered Architects. The directors have accumulated over fifty years experience within private practice and developer's offices specialising in residential and commercial design.

Based in North Cheshire near to the M56 & M6 and Liverpool and Manchester airports, we are able to cover a wide geographical area. The three directors run the office and take a hands-on approach in the design and management of all projects.

In addition to the directors there is a dedicated and experienced technical team. We are a tight-knit practice of sufficient size to run large projects but with the flexibility to respond to changing demands.
