Place Architecture was founded by professional architect, Francois van der Westhuizen in 2017.
We specialise in high-end residential and commercial architecture in Johannesburg, South Africa. We operate out of central Johannesburg in the lively Maboneng precinct.
"Place" in architecture is an emergent phenomenon at the intersection of 3 elements: the physical environment, activity, and meaning.
At Place Architecture, our aim is not simply to create spaces for our clients, but to cultivate the circumstances that will encourage the emergence of place.
We do this by carefully considering the relationship between spaces (physical environment), the needs of the users (activity), and the building's cultural impact (meaning).
We were very impressed by the first presentation and professional attitude of the consultation.Very reasonable prices as well.
