Architects in Gauteng Have to Be Versatile

No one can say that South Africa isn’t unique. And certainly, that uniqueness is characterised in the metropolitan areas of Johannesburg and Pretoria. Both Cities are massive and are unique urban environments. They pose unique questions to anyone who seeks to add to the architectural scape. If one desires to create something in these spaces, one needs an architectural firm that possesses the knowledge and the expertise. You need a firm that understands the environment as it is now, how it has developed, and where it’s going. Architects in Gauteng have to have unique attributes to navigate the design. They have to manage the fine balance between the constraints of a sprawling urban metropolis, sustainability, and client aspirations. 

The Sprawling Metropolis

Architects in Gauteng have to cope with a number of factors in terms of urban structure. An architect needs to be able to consider the environment around a structure. In South Africa’s urban centres there are lots of heritage buildings juxtaposed with modern structures. It takes someone who can walk the fine line between practicality and aesthetic appeal and architectural cohesion. It also has to be taken into consideration what government infrastructure is available in the area of building. 


There isn’t a lot these days that can be discussed without the environment being mentioned. This is for a good reason. The environment is not infinite, and neither are the materials we use, or the ozone layer. When designing, architects in Gauteng need to think about the materials and where the materials come from, how they are extracted, and what process goes into manufacturing them. They also need to consider how the build will impact the environment. The architect also has to consider how the structure will use energy. Structures are able to save the environment and money on energy through building design and materials. Extra consideration also has to go to cost management. 

Client Aspirations

When taking sustainability and the constraints of the surrounding urban environment into account, managing client aspirations is easier said than done.
