GAPP has evolved to become one of Africa’s foremost professional design firms, with an award-winning portfolio of work in high profile and prestigious projects across the continent.
We are defined by some of the most respected and accomplished individuals in our industry, offering a complementary range of skills in the fields of architecture, urban design, spatial planning, asset planning, urban development strategies, town planning, building information modelling (BIM), interior design and sustainable design which we view as a fundamental ethical responsibility in our work rather than an option.
Our philosophy encompasses a culture of mutual respect and open communication, which is apparent when visiting both our offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Our ability to seamlessly communicate ideas and information enables us to successfully offer our expertise across Africa, frequently collaborating in joint venture partnerships with local firms. Our vision is to maintain the highest professional standards from design excellence to client collaboration and in so doing, to create a built environment, which stands as a legacy for generations.
We provide urban design solutions based on the principles and applications of integrated and sustainable development. The guiding aspiration for all our projects is to achieve sustainable, livable, high quality and vibrant living environments. Our goal is to ensure that your project makes a positive contribution to the transformation, regeneration and rebuilding of our built environment. Our experienced and talented team of urban designers is capable of providing you with urban design policies.
Our approach is visionary, principle based and pragmatic. Our portfolio of integrated, evidence-based spatial planning includes a strong interface with environmental, social, heritage, financial and infrastructure realities. Our commissions include long term growth strategies to guide future development plans, guidelines and training for Spatial Development Frameworks, Municipal and Provincial SDF‘s. Our strong track record in interdisciplinary co-ordination and our ability to link long term visions with the realities of infrastructure planning and budgeting sets us apart in the field.
