NTSIKA architects

 

Ntsika Architects is one of the few 100% black female owned and run practices in South Africa. 

 

We believe we have an important role to play, as architects, in the shaping of the environment in which we live, in order to create better life for all. Ntsika Architects is a design-driven practice that strives at becoming a ‘model of excellence’ in every respect of design and business. We are committed to designing great buildings for our clients and improving the environment for the end-users and greater public. We believe that good design transforms the quality of the environment and aim to provide an architecture that is innovative, sustainable, an imaginative response to context and a pleasure to experience. 

Our primary focus is on advocating social justice through architectural practice and built form. Through the lens of social justice, our research focuses is the interrogation of the lack of quality public spaces and buildings within marginalized communities in Johannesburg. Our built projects challenge this status quo and starts to redefine the role of the architect within the South African context.

    I have always believed that people who have the ability to shape the built environment have the responsibility to do so with care. As a designer and a teacher, I believe we as architects have the ability to activate that change, creating spaces and strategies which tackle the difficulties which exist in our society and country. We are very fortunate to have this skill and use it to its full potential. As a South African, I see the complexity and questions which exists here. There is a richness which we have to be a part of. As an architect, I have the ability to tap into this richness, activate the change I see in my country and shape the built environment around me.

    I love that our industry is ever changing. It keeps us on our toes and reminds us that getting too comfortable is death in our profession. Being Dynamic and being open to engaging with others in the industry is really the name of the game. To Keep those creative juices flowing. South Africans are accustomed to this way of life and this equips us to better ourselves as architects on the daily.

    As I have grown architecture seemed to me, the most fantastic combination between engineer and artist, and today I stand by my choice. I am just going into the working world but I believe I am working with the right people and in the right field. I consider the years ahead to be filled with challenges, opposition and conflict. I will enjoy solving and overcoming everything with the help of people around me.
