ABOUT ARCHI

How do you begin anything?

Our creative studio exists in a space that is unrestricted. unconstrained. unconventional.

The Cape Town Architecture Studios brand was founded in 2011 by two diverse individual visionaries. Driven by the pursuit of architectural innovation. the original brand was conceptualised at a time where democracy and liberation echoed its sentiments on design – to be free. experimental and inventive.

The Cape Town Architecture Studios brand evolved into the dynamic. refined brand. ARCHI.CAPETOWN in 2014.

The beginning of ARCHI.CAPETOWN is not defined by any singular moment. it is the resolve of a collective of experience. Our vision is pursued with passion and commitment to achieve an architecture of consequence with the overall objective of ensuring a positive contribution to the formation of a sustainable. resilient public environment.

Our Portfolio is a collective of institutional. retail. medical. residential and commercial projects.

At ARCHI.CAPETOWN we believe that passion is paramount. We are invested in our creative dynamic team. Our architectural interventions are a collaboration of our highly skilled. committed. and engaged professionals.

What drives us is passion – the rest is dedication.

The results are Innovation.
