First 2 years
Erik Grobler Architect
We are a young and enthusiastic company in Paarl, South Africa. We practice architecture in the greater Cape Town Area.
Since being established in June 2013, the company has been involved with various houses and extensions, a large factory extension in Blackheath, a new creche in Khayelitsha, a retreat in the Karoo and a recording studio in Woodstock among others.
Currently we have completed more than ninety projects, in a range of different places such as Newlands, Simons Town, Franschhoek, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Muizenberg.
For a client, planning and building a new house or other type of building can be a long process, with many unforeseen obstacles. When the final product takes form the client has also invested his funds in the project. We aim to provide the client with a quality service that allows him/her to have a better experience and quality of life through the execution of the design. We believe that we deliver something more than a product, a better way of living, a aspiration, a priceless quality that will be an exponential return on the clients investment.
For a design to be successful resolved, simplicity is striven for. This resolution in simplicity should accommodate all the required programs and still function well.
Well lit buildings and the mastery of natural light are fundamental to all our designs, whether it is a house or factory. It is much more pleasant to spend long hours in a space and be connected with the passing of the day and seasons informing the nuances of experience that enrich our lives.
We deeply value our client/architect relationship and look forward to working together in the spirit of creating a sense of place.
