As one of the most awarded architectural firms founded in 2002, Edward Co Tan +Architects commits to design, build and develop structures and communities that move, inspire and stimulate our society.


As part of our vision, we provide business planning alongside our philosophy of Structure as Architecture. We ensure that each project is engineered and studied meticulously for business planning. Thus, making every square inch of your project, functional and thoroughly maximized for optimum investment. In this way, we deliver results that benefit both property owners and investors.


Our experience of working hand in hand with the industry leaders of real estate have given us the experience to continuously deliver noteworthy creative work from conceptualization to implementation. Our reputation is built on providing excellence in designing and developing structures that deliver sustainable and flawless urban design while maintaining cost effectivity.


At ECT+A, we embrace advancements and methodologies that compliment systems of institutions like the PhilGBC (Philippine Green Building Council), USGBC (US Green Building Council), and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).


In every project, we give our clients our best. Which is why, we provide them with technical expertise on environmental responsibility; cost efficiency on operation and development costs; and our personal and expert attention to ensure that every project is given continuity from planning, feasibility, design construction and project administration.


Structure as Architecture means that we focus on design, planning and devising methodologies that make each one of us sensitive to every millimeter, surface and detail of your project.


We offer a unique approach to architectural design that uses a method known as the “Bearing Wall System”– it maximizes material and labor resources related to design and engineering, thus producing an interior space free fro columns and beams.


At ECT+A sustainability is our passion. For 12 years we have been advocating the message that sustainable design can be achieved on any project, budget, building type and location.


We believe that sustainability is the foundation of beneficial, timeless design which transcends culture and trends. Sustainable design is smart and conscious design.
