Onderweegs Architects headed by professional Architect Yvonne Onderweegs is an architectural practice based in Stellenbosch South Africa.
After completion of her Masters of Architecture (Prof) degree in 2004 Yvonne has worked mainly in high-end single residential and multi-residential markets completing numerous projects throughout Southern Africa.
Working with South African acclaimed Architects has been a remarkable career foundation of practical experience on site, design and technical development, direct communication with clients and intricate project management to get the jobs constructed within time and budget.
Having the opportunity to learn from Australian Master; Glenn Murcutt and others in 2010, she was influenced by their precise detailing and understanding of our co-existence with fragile natural environments, and the value placed on individual souls who occupy the spaces architect’s create.
Yvonne has always loved the outdoors, is a keen endurance athlete and adventurer, travels regularly and draws creative inspiration from detail in nature and rural landscapes. She did her Masters on processing / industrial facilities in the South African agricultural landscape and would very much like to explore those avenues again.
The vision of Onderweegs Architects is to craft architecture that fulfill the client's personal dreams and investment expectation, within functional restrictions and sensitive environments.
Experience made her realize that there is not simply a parallel between meaningful architectural design ideas and successful strategic construction project management, but a vital interrelation amongst all parties is necessary in order to make a committed difference in this world we live in.
