Anthrop Architects is an award winning architectural practice specialising in the commercial, social development, and residential sector of the built environment. The practice was established in 2013 by Roald Meyer and Leon van der Westhuizen, young architects with more than 20-years combined experience in design and managing various scales of projects.
As a dynamic architectural practice we are committed to our clients in providing them with a personal professional service, focusing on value creation and sustainable design principles. We follow an integrated approach, incorporating design skills with all the latest Building-Information-Modelling technology needed to respond to the complexity and challenges of contemporary architecture.
Our firm’s name, Anthrop, describes our design philosophy, and is derived from the Greek word ánthrōpos meaning human being. As Architects, we study the behaviour of people within their various environments and therefore have an anthropological understanding of how people live, meet & relax in a space.
Our vision is to be a leader in sustainable design principles in our various sectors of the built environment, adding value and improving the quality of life of our clients and the users of our buildings.
