    Who we are

    Founded in 2008, we are a young architectural practice, based in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. One of the advantages of being small is that our clients are sure to get personal attention. We love people, our planet, buildings, and even more to mix them up to create new dwellings.

    Our Philosophy on Architecture


    While design is our most loved stage of the project, we especially pride ourselves in solving detail aspects of buildings at early stages of the project.

    This trait saves the client, architect, fellow consultants and contractors a lot of stress during construction. It also saves the client money, and protects the clients interests in the long run. Better details make better buildings.

    Our Philosophy & Values

    Our Values


    01Contextually relevant architecture. An architecture that:

    • addresses the client’s needs;
    • addresses the parameters set by the unique site;
    • optimise the above to present a product that exceeds the client’s expectations, budget permits.

    02Honesty and fairness towards the local government, client , fellow consultants and contractors involved in the building process

    Our Philosophy on Architecture


    A great privilege, but an even greater responsibility - That is what it means to be involved in architecture. This privilege and responsibility is, however, not limited to the architect, but pertains to all parties involved in the building process, especially the client. When we build buildings, we change the natural landscape permanently.

    We take resources from mother earth, transforms it under heat and pressure while consuming huge quantities of energy and combines them to suit our requirements.

    We have to therefore ask the question: Are we making the world a better place with our buildings, or do we, in spite of all its sacrifices, scar it even more?

    One cannot be against littering, and commit bad buildings. We need to make the best use of these natural resources, and celebrate it by using it in a responsible manner.
