This page contains a selection of major South African architects, with links to individual practice pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key South African Architects, but additions are always welcome. The focus is on contemporary architects in South Africa but information on traditional architecture studios is also welcome.
Currently the most notable architecture practice are Noero Wolff Architects, SAOTA Architects and Nico van der Meulen Architects – the latter two offices both famous for contemporary houses.
