Kelvin Thengono approaches architecture as response through contextualisation, shaping spatial experiences within the interior space. His concern for the climatic condition invests his work with creative thinking through playful use of natural light and ventilation. His work is influenced by the modern movement, mainly accompanied by the connection with the Indonesian Traditional Architecture.
That is why Kelvin loves promoting local natural material that incorporates exposed concrete, wood, and stone. He took the first step of his career in San Francisco, California; as an Architectural Designer for award winning architecture firms, including Craig Steely Architecture, Jensen Architects, and Min|Day. Kelvin moved back home and flew to Bali to work with Alexis Dornier as a Project Designer before he started his own practice in 2019. He recently has been an invited design critic at California College of the Arts.
