Van der Merwe Miszewski Architects - VDMMA

The methodology of the practice hinges on 'design process' and has sought to rather try to find "meaning in the built environment" - as opposed to being pre-occupied with what a building "looks like". Central to this methodology is our firm blief that no two sites, briefs or clients are the same, and that 'to make it work' - a project must be based on and sustained by a "holding idea" or set of "holding ideas". The terms; "site", "brief" and "client" are not topographically, programatically, or culturally defined.

Along with two other firms, VMMA was appointed as local executive architects for the award-winning Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa and The Silo Hotel.
