Slee & Co. Architects (Pty) Ltd was founded in 1986 by principal partner & director Johann Slee. Our studio, a historical infill project, located at 103 Dorp Street, was awarded a 2011 Cape Institute of Architecture Award for Architecture.
The philosophy behind our design is to incorporate and respect the diverse aspirations and heritages of our clients; to learn from advanced technologies and to create a vernacular architecture, embracing our unique people, skills, climate and space.
Our architectural palette has its origin in the earth - muted earth colours, textured finishes reflecting abundant sunlight. Our built structures reflect simplicity and honesty, echoing the vernacular of local built forms. Our expertise lies in residential spaces, holiday homes and lodges, and selective commercial work that falls into our design philosophy.
We are experienced in dealing with all Heritage Organisations and regulations due to our work on historical buildings in Stellenbosch and we are also equipped to do projects far afield. Our creative practice consists of a small, effective and highly experienced core team and we appoint outsource services when and if necessary.
