COMPREHENSIVE PROJECT SOLUTIONS

Louw & Louw Architects offer a complete architectural service. We work with a select group of contractors and other professionals. We offer in-house interior services and are set up to put together the complete package for our clients, including managing the professional team, as many of our clients are abroad and rely on us as the single point of contact to look after their interests.

STYLE AND AESTHETIC

We do not have a set style, and let the process and project brief guide the aesthetic outcome. However, we always aim to create elegant, well proportioned and timeless buildings. This is evident in our portfolio: we have wonderful examples of both contemporary and classical designs. Estate architecture often enforces a certain aesthetic: although we respect the Guidelines, we always aim to
create unique and individually styled properties.

INTERIOR ARCHITECTS

Louw & Louw Architects have a team of interior architects and designers. We are one of the few practices to offer this as an in-house service. Architecture and interior design merge from the early stages of the design process – the result is an extra layer of design and sophistication, not only to interiors, but evident in all aspects of the project.

‘I entrusted Louw & Louw Architects with the design and realisation of our dream home whilst living abroad. It has been a professional, positive and pleasurable experience. I value their absolute commitment and passion towards our project.’

LARGE SCALE RESIDENCES

Louw & Louw Architects have successfully completed, and is currently busy with large and super scale residences, ranging from 800m² – 2200m². There are unique challenges when designing large scale residences, as we firmly believe that these residences must always respond to a human scale and offer private and smaller spaces.

GENTLEMANS’ ESTATES

The Gentlemans’ Estates, River Club Estates and The Reserves Estates in Val de Vie, Paarl, are regarded as some of the most  prestigious developments in the Cape Winelands. Louw & Louw Architects are currently busy with four of these flagship properties and regard ourselves as specialists who understand the relevant complexities and importance of working with the right professional team from the onset of the project. We are looking forward to share some construction progress pictures soon.

ENVIRONMENT, ENVIRONMENTAL

We have a strong Urban Design background – this is evident in our designs as we believe in the context of buildings in their immediate environments. Views, trees, contours and natural vegetation often guides the design process. Where possible and applicable, we aim to retain as much of the natural environment, and believe in the magic of a tree in a courtyard.
Sustainabillity starts with the design and layout of the house – passive environmental design. Solar and renewable energy and water preservation (rain water harvesting, grey water systems) are added to the project brief at an early stage, and incorporated into the design. We work with specialists and will guide you to the appropriate solution to your project. We work closely with Landscape Architects and regard the landscaping and building to be viewed holistically.
