The Firm

TC Design Architects is a professional South African based full service design firm. We have been operating for over fifty years and have offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

We are construction-focused and provide a range of services for both private and public clients:

  • Architecture
  • Project Management
  • Interior Design
  • Master Planning
  • Space Planning

We bring creative thinking into every one of our projects, no matter what their scale. Our aim is to deliver efficient, functional and socially relevant responses to each and every project.

We consistently meet our clients’ business objectives through our integrated design approach, cutting edge in-house capabilities and proven ability to manage strong consultant teams.

Every one of our projects is unique, the result of a search for an identity that reflects its site, the client constraints and opportunities and the needs and aspirations of the community the project serves.

We are dedicated to technological development.

We use advanced building systems to assist in evolving our design processes to stay at the forefront of our field. In line with this, we have integrated Building Informational Modelling into our designs.

Building sustainable communities is one of our core concerns.

This concern informs our vision – a vision focused on people and how they respond to the built environment.

We deliver projects of the utmost quality, with due concern for sensitivity to the environment and the performance of the project measured against the established deliverables. By doing so, these buildings and their communities not only succeed in the near term but have historically offered an attractive value proposition over time.

TC Design Architects is a registered member of the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) and many of our designers are GBCSA certified professionals.

“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us”. — Winston Churchill

We are totally committed to shaping buildings that positively shape communities. We strive for excellence, ensuring that our clients gain added value from our efforts.
