Recent Projects

Furntech George

We have been privileged to have been associated with Furntech and passionately endorse the excellent service they render in the transfer of skills and incubation of  SME’s within the furniture manufacturing industry in South Africa. This association began with our involvement in their first centre on the NMMU Campus of Saasveld, near George, and has continued on to the opening of their seventh centre in Mthatha, Transkei.

NMU George Campus Saasveld

Set at the feet of the majestic Outeniqua Mountains outside of George, the facilities of the Saasveld Campus of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University were extended in 2008 by the addition of several classrooms, computer laboratories and a new library. It is anticipated that construction of their new Students Centre will commence in 2009.

Woodmill Walk Shopping Mall

This fashion based shopping mall in central Knysna was styled and articulated to reflect the character of the older buildings in the central Knysna area. Completed in 1988, it continues to yield positive returns to the developer.


Holiday Home (1), Herolds Bay, George

This holiday home located in Herolds Bay outside of George, is situated on a very small property at the Eastern end of the beach, under the shadow of the adjacent headland. The limited extent of the site necessitated the careful and creative use of internal and external space, including the use of the roof for outdoor activities and to catch the warmth of the sun.


Holiday Home (2), Herolds Bay, George

A great deal of credit must be given to the creative energies of our Clients, together with whom this unique home was created. Innovative use has been made of materials and components salvaged from historic buildings elsewhere, the crowning achievement being the connection between the sea and the pool deck which, despite its location on a built up hillside, retains a profound sense of solitude.
