About Us

Vanguard Architects was established in February 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, the company has grown from strength to strength with work commissions in almost all provinces of South Africa and has further developed its reach to the SADC Region with work in Zambia, Botswana, Malawi and the Democratic republic of Congo.

The company places a high focus on design excellence through responsible design and technological innovation. Comprised of a team of vibrant Architects, the firm practices a MODERN and GREEN design philosophy. Over the years, we have proudly been involved in the design of Shopping centers, Leisure resorts, Hospitals, Schools, Offices and Houses as part of our portfolio.

Driven to add value to our client’s investments, we simultaneously strive to enhance the user’s experience of the architecture we produce. As an equal opportunity practice we offer our staff the freedom to express their individuality, all the while being underpinned and developed by the experience of the long-standing cadre of directors and staff. The company philosophy is that all staff members are part of a team, all being equally important and adding value to our end product.

At Vanguard Architects our aim is to produce works of architecture and not mere buildings. We aim to produce works that are relevant to use, the user, the location and the environment.

We are always on the look out for that ambitious Client that is looking for a Bespoke building design, one who isn’t too afraid to push the boundaries of design excellence. One of our team members is always saying “we put a man on the moon, what cant we do on this earth?

Come and experience the Vanguard way, the way of the future!
