Our practice is based in the lovely seaside town of Kleinmond, a stone’s throw away from the whale watching capital of the world, Hermanus. In the old days we used to have an office in Gauteng, which means we still travel there once a month to tend to ongoing projects. It also affords us the opportunity to meet up with clients living up country who owns properties down at the coast. We have been practicing for over 20 years and although our training wheels are off, we still love what we do.
Our core focus on is private residential homes and residential housing projects. We use fancy programs like Revit so that we can create 3D models enabling you to see the building rise out of the ground on screen before it is realized on site. This makes the design process intuitive, allowing us to prototype your project before it is built. It makes the construction process easier by eliminating mistakes that were hidden from sight in the old two dimensional pen and paper drawings. All this makes for a better and more economical project.
The benefit of having practised for many years is that we have formed lasting relationships with professional consultants within the industry. We are therefore confident that we can guarantee the quality of the final product.
Please feel free to check out our portfolio of projects, like us on Facebook or follow us on Instagram to see what we are up to. The best would be to call us so that we can meet up to discuss how we can be of value and assistance to you.
