Bringing your ideas to life

Sense Architects


“I don’t think architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure. It should be able to excite you, calm you, make you think.”
– Zaha Hadid, Architect.

It is about bringing a space to life through memory and senses. SENSE Architects are a full-service architectural firm.

About Sense Architects

We are a Stellenbosch based Architectural Firm, specializing in:

Urban Design

Urban design is the process of designing and shaping the physical features of cities and towns and planning for the provision of municipal services to residents.

Residential Projects

To successfully design a house, many aspects are taken into account – the client’s vision, their needs, the specific attributes of the site, views, existing vegetation, orientation, sustainable design aspects and many more. We have experience in the design of houses ranging from 180m2 to 1100m2 in size.

Residential Estates

Many clients prefer to build houses in Residential Estates – along with this, there are always specific Design Guidelines to adhere to. We have extensive experience in how to design within an estate’s specific parameters and how to manage the process of getting your house aesthetically approve by the HOA of the Estate.

Retirement Housing

In South Africa there is currently a big shortfall for affordable and properly designed housing for the elderly. We have been involved in a variety of these type of schemes and considers ourselves experts in this field!

Alterations & Additions

No project is too big or too small for us. In many cases, people prefer to rather extend their existing house and make a few changes to existing spaces. For us, this is like solving a new puzzle. Sometimes we just need to look at something from a different angle and in a different light to see the potential.
