COA is a Cape Town based, design focused architectural firm that believes in craft filtering down to the last degree; from concept to final product. It is this ‘hands on approach’ that is evident in everything we do. Valuing the creative process above all else places a strong emphasis on a collaborative approach. All of this is made possible by the smart, imaginative minds of our design teams, supported by a strong professional organisation, enabling projects to flow smoothly and timeously.

Our goal is to simply listen to our client and intelligently interpret their needs, resulting in design that not only compliments the project location and specific requirements, but also delivers a unique and personalised solution. As passionate architects and designers we are constantly trying to improve our craft and thus continually evolving. While this ensures innovative design, we still place a strong emphasis on simple, sustainable, timeless architecture.

We believe that ultimately the process needs to be an exceptionally enjoyable experience for our clients. On entering our studio, one can sense our environment being a breeding ground for contagious creativity, harnessing an array of strengths and talents
