Francois Marais Architects is a South African practice that pushes at the limits of engineering and that has produced a varied and extensive portfolio that showcases their ability to create signature buildings, which test the conventional boundaries of modern architecture and design.

Their in-house design team works together to ensure that each individual aspect of design is considered and synergises. Their architectural designs blur the lines between interior and exterior and create comfortable spaces that engage and complement their surroundings. They place specific emphasis on green design by incorporating passive solar design, which is taken into consideration from conception of the project and includes: orientation, shading of openings, incorporating atriums, as well as the use of indigenous vegetation that will allow for control over solar exposure.

FMA are committed to developing forward thinking, green designs that make use of the very latest and affordable eco-friendly technologies and materials to produce intelligent, sophisticated and sustainable buildings.
