Roelof Rabe Architects don't promise to be different. We are. It's part of our fibre and the heartbeat that pulses through the team and its creations. We don't promise a specific style or approach either - that would be conforming. No, we don't promise fireworks and flyers. We promise an ethos and approach that differentiates us instinctively. One that is uniquely ours and ensures an embedded difference.
We are an inspired team who love to get our hands dirty. We feel that settling, in all its forms, would betray who we are. We test all avenues, explore all options and start from the bottom in order to create innovative and dynamic designs. Other than always exploring, always creating, always questioning and always challenging ourselves, we have no comfort zone.
Roelof Rabe Architects promise dedication. We dedicate ourselves to the client's needs and budget by honouring those in both the most innovative and practical manners possible. Each project is a pioneer project. Each design warrants research and a fresh outlook - we draw from experience, but don't rest on it for solutions nor inspiration. Our minimalist and logical layouts are brought to life by our desire to provide our clients with feasible and sensible creations that have pushed us to create afresh every time.
"Pure pragmatism cannot imagine a bold future. Pure idealism cannot get anything done.
It is the delicate blend of both that drives innovation."
"It is not blindly pushing your own agenda that will really create rich opportunities in your life, career, business - and in the world. It's is your ability to understand, appreciate, anticipate, address, add value to that of others that will."
