We are located in a factory - a workshop where conceptual design becomes reality. With 50% of the company consisting of the manufacturing and building of prototypes, we are able to test quality and develop conceptual designs. This is another crucial attribute that sets us apart from the usual architects. Our lab consists of a design & drawing studio as well as a workshop.
As young designers, we think outside the box. We challenge ideas and push the boundaries of conventional ideas in order to develop fresh, unique designs and new ideas.
WHAT ARE WE?
We are not a NPO/NGO, but we are a company with a social conscience. We are not your usual architects. We have extensive experience in both design and manufacture. Our experience in design & build (turn-key) is what sets us apart from your regular architectural practice. We are very hands-on architects (something that the modern day architect lacks)
WHERE ARE WE?
Our passion for architecture and the profession grew from experimental projects we did as students, getting our hands dirty and learning from experience. Our team consists of Anton Bouwer, Dirk Coetser and John Saaiman. Our individual skills and experience creates a formidable team, Dirk's & Anton's strengths lie in conceptual phase, design and presentation of projects, whilst John manages the construction and detailing of buildings.
