With ever changing and improving modern technology, the way architecture has evolved is also quite remarkable. Modern architecture gets its inspiration from many factors including influences from fashion, food and nature. Modern design is directed toward open plan spaces, marring the functional elements of the house – kitchen, dining, lounge, entertainment so as to promote flow from one space to another. Bringing the outside indoors is also a very trendy thing to do.By incorporating atrium and green plant walls we are able to improve the quality of living inside. With many people being mostly indoors for their work and even play, it has become important to incorporate natural elements indoors due to their many health and healing benefits. More and more people are beginning to source the services of an architect as the property market is demanding better and more functional designs. The standard plans that were sufficient in the past are no longer suitable for the social way in which South Africans like to gather.
Architects take into account various things like the space available, the requirements of the clients, structure, shape and several other factors that are necessary to create a functional space. It is important to choose the right architect for your project, some architects have specific styles and preferences that they design to, some architects have a certain scope that they are specialized in and others such as FM architects are all encompassing. We have professionals in our office that can tend to any requirement. Our main aim is to design a space that is unique to each specific client and not to impose a particular style onto you. We have knowledge in all scopes of work as we have been in the business for over 20 years and come from a back-round of architects.

We do not only work with big companies but also with individual residences and each project gets our full attention.

The advantages of hiring a professional architect over a draftsman can quite easily be seen in the function and flow of a house, the expert use of space and the incorporation of green techniques is what sets architects, who study up to 6 years for their degree, apart from the rest.
