a global approach.
CLK Design Studio is a design-focused, residential architectural design studio. Over the years, we have shaped our identity around creating meaningful residential architecture which is often challenging and demanding! As such, our office focuses almost exclusively on design for habitation, whether in an urban, peri urban, township, informal or rural context. Our practice focuses on new builds as well as exciting renovations. On occasion, we take on experimental design projects, competitions and charity (pro-bono) work.
Due to the small size of the office, only a handful of projects are undertaken by us at any given time. This means that we can only select a limited number of projects in order to fully focus our attention and efforts into delivering a high quality service to our clients. Therefore, clients can sometimes be subjected to a short waiting list as well as a risk assessment profile before we can agree to take on a project. In order to better respond to demand, we are establishing CLK Studio as a digital architecture studio with remote offices set to be opened in Cape Town, Polokwane and Durban. This move allows us to grow the practice in an unconventional manner which responds to the "new normal" of work and helps us to reach a wider client base.
The studio is led by a young diverse team of talented associates, architects and designers with a focus on creating unique homes for unique tastes and capturing every client’s vision and expressing it through breathtakingly beautiful and bespoke designs. The most exciting part, is that we have adopted a completely remote way of working and have started executing projects through virtual offices and platforms - making us a truly digital architectural design studio with a global reach and a unique ability to establish teams almost anywhere in the world.

WE ARE CREATING A NEW WORKFLOW THAT IS COMPLETELY DIGITAL - THIS HAS ALLOWED US THE FREEDOM TO WORK FROM ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
We strive to make homes that are enriched by and respond to the uniqueness of their site and landscape, the movement of the sun, changes of the weather and the precise choice of materials. We believe that buildings must engage the senses and inspire emotion. As such, we are more interested in the emotional and experiential response that a home will evoke as opposed to buildings that are simply architecturally intellectual.
