About Us

Louis van Tonder Architects architectural designs for houses Louis van Tonder Architects - architectural design and technology, design and  development
We are a family owned and run architectural firm. As a father and son team, we have combined experience of over 50 years and have been working together successfully for 10 years.

Because we are small, the quality of our work and satisfaction of our clients, are the most important things to us. We do in new houses, major renovations and additions, commercial work and 3D scanning surveys. Our aim for our clients is to take the project from start to finish with as little trouble and effort to them as possible.

“We design and create spaces that are comfortable, beautiful and practical. The dreams and needs of our clients serve as the driving force for all our work. For us building design is far more than a job, it is a privilege. To enable people to live and work in spaces that delight, nourish and provide comfort is what motivates us to work hard and deliver quality designs on-time every time. We don’t just work for our clients; we form a partnership with them to make their project a resounding success.”

What makes us unique?

Free Consultations
We are more than happy to meet potential clients on-site to give a free consultation and quotation. We realise that whether you are building a new home or renovating, it is a big decision and investment and getting comfortable with the architect is vital before making a commitment.
The Family Touch
One thing that is guaranteed is the personal touch and attention that comes with a family business. Often when dealing with larger firms, once a deal is closed by the senior management, the project may be handed over to a junior in the business. We are an owner-managed business who take ownership of all projects and strive for excellence.
We have endeavoured to lead the way with technology and remain on the fringe of our industry. We have invested in 3D scanning technology, and this enables us to do surveys quicker, faster, and more accurately. It has also enabled us to increase our offering as we now offer services to other architects and designers.
