"I am very happy with the

overall experience I had while designing and building my new home. Platform Architects's attention to detail was very helpful."

Kirsten Melly

"They just 'got us'. We spent a bit of time during the analysis, it was worth the results we got in the smooth design process"

We are different

It's like LEGO blocks for adults

At Platform Architects we know you are the kind of people who want your home to facilitate the lifestyle you want to live. In order to achieve that, you need to make some changes and upgrade your living space by building a new home, or renovating your current one.

 

The problem is that you can’t do this on your own and you may be worried about the complicated design and planning process, as well as the financial implications which make you feel overwhelmed and intimidated. We believe this can be a stressful process. We understand your concerns and we analyse your specific needs for your home.

That’s why we took the time to develop a process that allows you just the right amount of control and involvement, along with the security of having an expert team to guide your decisions.

 

Here’s how it works: set up your free meet and greet, conduct a project analysis, tailor-make your own service package, and we will take it from there! So visit our website to book a meeting time that suits you, so you can stop dreaming about your ideal home and start living in it.

Thank you for a friendly, professional and thorough service regarding the Project Analysis. The input and steer that the analysis provided answered all my questions.

We believe in a strong research approach to design, meaning we investigate and analyse the design ‘problem’ from 3 angles:

  • financial

  • legal and spatial

This way you know that you are investing in building or improving on your existing home in the best possible way.

 

If for any reason after the project analysis you decide not to continue your journey, we stop here. No mess no fuss.
