SAOTA is a firm of architectural designers and technicians including in-house CGI and marketing teams, as well as a strong support staff.

It is driven by the dynamic combination of Stefan Antoni, Philip Olmesdahl, Greg Truen, Phillippe Fouché and Mark Bullivant who share a potent vision easily distinguished in their design.

This, paired with both an innovative and dedicated approach to the execution of projects, has seen SAOTA become an internationally sought-after brand. Capitalising on a unique understanding of an ever-evolving industry, SAOTA continues to build on past experiences and is well positioned to offer expert services to the corporate, institutional, commercial and residential marketplace.

With strong roots in South Africa, 85 % of SAOTA’s clientele is now international with cities like Moscow, Sydney, Miami, Dubai and Lagos becoming an increasing source of both interest and business. What has truly been the momentum behind this success is the meeting of function and form, the balance of the needs of their clients and the pursuit of true architectural design.

Ensuring that clients see significant returns on their projects has led to not only a growing client base, but repeat commissions. The focus on achieving maximum value has also led to global invitations to design, build and create highly prestigious projects. The philosophy of practice is embodied in the spirit of enquiry that flourishes amongst its staff.

This spirit not only guides the firm, but enables it to maintain its position as definitive designers in a highly competitive and fast-changing industry. Increased exposure to the global marketplace has seen SAOTA flourish as cities and contexts allow for infinite inspiration which can be seen radiating from the approach to design.
