Founded by Buhle Mathole, Kabu Design Architects established its vision in 2007. A young firm with a deep sense of pride in its African heritage, Kabu is a B-BBEE level one contributor, proud to be able to function within the South African economic landscape.
Kabu Design Architect’s company mission is to embark on architecture that is contextual to our South African landscape, yet enhancing the design edge with creative and unique work. This is being achieved through excellence as a hallmark for all that the firm stands for.
Kabu Design Architects also hopes to create and develop a currently non-existent spatial understanding of African dwellings. This being a modern and contemporary structure engineered to imbue our past as Africans, our rich inheritance, lush vegetation and modern influences appropriately contextualised.
We endeavour to meet our clients’ needs timeously and appropriately within the set budget constraints, which are integral to the process of building, renovating and upgrading any structure.
Kabu Design Architects is interested in architecture as a whole. We understand that the industry is constantly evolving, as is common in all spheres of design, and it is for this reason that we aim to entrench ourselves within the South African architectural landscape, exploring all aspects including residential, commercial and social initiatives, as designers of places for all humanity’s needs.
Kabu Design Architects aims not just for excellence but to transcend design theory through constant practice, growth and initiative.
