Your Vision. Our Design.

The TVS Promise

To fulfil your vision
TVS values your satisfaction and we commit ourselves to understanding your vision, your needs, and your goals. We promise to provide our best professional service to you and will aim to delight.

To deliver your project on time, on budget
TVS understand the strain that budget and time constraints create for you. We can deliver your project on time and on budget whilst ensuring that quality of the design, documentation and service is not compromised. Excellent design outcomes will be achieved within your budget constraints, your needs, not our egos, will drive project outcomes.

To create innovative designs and practical solutions for you
TVS directors understand your need for value adding innovative designs and cost effective practical solutions. Having undertaken our own developments, we can apply our knowledge and expertise to your project to provide the best possible outcomes for you.

To provide high quality service for you
TVS directors look after your project from start to finish. In this way we can guarantee that a clear understanding of your requirements will be carried all the way through your project. We will provide a prompt, honest and professional service and will always act in your best interest. We pride ourselves in maintaining high trust and lasting relationships.

Your praise is our greatest reward
While we have received design awards and they are gratifying, we value your good opinion the most. We are very proud of our client references and have displayed some here on this website. We look forward to the opportunity to earn your high regard.

Sustainable Design
TVS has distinguished itself within Queensland over many years, as a leader in the field of Environmental Architecture & Interiors. Our success is attributed to our knowledge and experience of ESD that has grown from more than 20 years in the field. TVS had been building environmentally responsible buildings since before the term became part of main stream culture.

We believe in the need for ESD, but we also recognize the need for realistic outcomes on each project. We employ a practical approach through which the core items of ESD value are focused on. This ensures the client receives the required outcome in the most efficient and cost effective way. We work within the project design teams to achieve early integration of the ESD initiatives and thereby limiting its short term budgetary impacts. Most ESD initiatives are cost neutral and others pay for themselves over time.

Quality Assurance
Our Firm has quality assurance systems in place since the 11th of November 1997 and is endorsed and certified by BSI Management Systems to the requirements of ISO 9001 2000. Our specially developed “job check” system tracks each project through a series of quality control gates. Our firm was a leader in this field having won the regional, state and national 1992 small business award category TQM. In 1992, a commendation award was also received from the Australian Quality Council. In 1993 the firm became the first architectural firm, the first professional firm as well as the first small enterprise to win an Australian Quality Award.
Our History
Our architectural practice was established in 1947 as Prangley & Crofts. In 1990 we changed our name to The TVS Partnership and now trade as TVS architects. The firm has won the Australian Quality Award, State and National Awards for Quality Management, and numerous architectural and design awards. Our integration of sustainable design started before the term had been coined. Environmental building management has been a TVS philosophy for more than 20 years.
Our Expertise
TVS provide services in Architecture, Interior Design, Ecological Building Design, Facilities Planning, Master Planning and Project Management. With offices in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, we have undertaken projects for both the public and private sectors in local, regional and overseas locations. We have experience on new build projects from initial visioning and refurbishment and extension projects. We work across many sectors and invite you to look through our portfolio of projects. This is not an exhaustive list of projects, so if you have a project not covered by the project types listed please contact us to see if we can help you.
Our Ethos
Your vision and client needs drive our design for your project. We are not driven by architectural egos and work in a co-operative honest and sincere way to achieve client satisfaction. TVS create excellent designs that work for the client, end users, the community and the environment. Refinement of the design is undertaken to maximize benefits of simplification of design, sitting, servicing, and construction. We focus on the quality of design, documentation and co-ordination to control quality, time and cost impacts.You will have a Director on the project all the way through.

  • TVS Architects led by Michael Kisluk have worked collaboratively with CA, the Project Manager and consultants to achieve a design that meets the brief and is within budget and on program. The attention to detail and cost effectiveness of designs displayed by the TVS team and ability to deliver the result in a designated timeframe was excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending TVS Architects.

  • I have found TVS Archirects to be diligent, hardworking, cost effective and creative in their approach to architecture; particularly with reference to dealing with difficult on-site constraints. Their ability to work cohesively as part of a consultant team speaks volumes about the character of personnel within the company as well as the ethos of the company itself.

  • Designing to a brief & budget are often qualities Architects can lose sight of, however TVS have demonstrated time & time again their ability to listen to & understand a client’s brief. They have adaptability above most Architectural firms, producing quality designs that certainly add value to the project. I would gladly recommend TVS as a preferred Architect.
