TFWA is a full service architecture practice based in San Diego and working in cities across the US.  Dedicated to engaging closely with stakeholders we craft buildings and spaces that connect with the environment and the community in authentic and innovative ways.



The process is a collaboration driven by curiosity and authenticity to the clients, users, and to the surroundings. TFWA approaches projects with the essential idea that the built environment and its context are part of one codependent system.  This has allowed the projects to develop a strong sense of place through a high performing yet efficient use of resources.
