Teresa Borsuk BSc (Hons) DipArch ARB RIBA CDA


Teresa adopts a straightforward and practical approach that strives to produce solutions that are intelligent and imaginative. She is adept at enthusing others.

“I strive to find value and joy in every project, making the working environment and process enjoyable and rewarding – getting the best out of everyone and so, achieving a special result.”

Her unflagging drive to attain quality makes her committed to following projects through to construction on site. Teresa has over 35 years’ experience in the housing, mixed-use and regeneration sectors, and has both designed and delivered a series of successful and award-winning projects, ranging from major mixed-use developments to infill sites and refurbishments. Experience gained in decades of regenerating areas of London is now informing work in Cambridge, Oxford and the wider south-east.

She is known for her close attention to detail, and has a special expertise in the complex interweaving of new and historic buildings: high-profile work in this sector includes award-winning offices for our own developer/contractor clients. Teresa is involved in PTE’s own property development activity and on one project acted as developer, architect and main contractor.

Teresa is a RIBA Client Advisor, an architectural judge for several national awards and is on the LLDC and London Borough of Newham Quality Review Panels. In 2015, Teresa was awarded AJ Woman Architect of the Year.
