Tricia Patel BA (Hons) DipArch ARB RIBA


Tricia Patel is an equity partner and leads one of PTE’s two design workshops focused on the concept and planning stages, especially for large residential-led regeneration projects.

Her enthusiasm, and talent for listening, can draw from clients and user groups a deep understanding of what they really want from their project. She is skilled at using the insights gained to produce successful outcomes:

“I really enjoy meeting people and finding out what they think about their home, their school or their street. They often have practical insights which might not otherwise occur to professionals.”

Tricia has over 25 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 large-scale masterplans to infill sites and refurbishments. She has planned and led numerous community engagement programmes, both on housing estates and in established mixed-tenure neighbourhoods.

Tricia is also one of the practice’s ambassadors for young people and has won the Junior Open House Architectural Mentor award.
