My name is Pieter Pieters and I am a South African Architect based in Johannesburg.
After growing up in Tzaneen, a small town in the Northern parts of South Africa, I studied Architecture at the University of the Free State. During my studies I worked at various firms (Dombo and Du Plessis, Incline Architects and Van Onselen Building Consultants) building up experience as a student-in-training.
Before my Masters in Architecture I worked for Helm Architects for a year, which greatly influenced my decision on the Dissertation Project the following year.
I completed my dissertation with distinction in 2011, titled Portal to Port Elizabeth: Architecture as a Catalyst for Urban Renewal, under the supervision of Prof. Walter Peters, Martie Bitzer and Jan Ras.
Since then I have completed my compulsory candidacy, stipulated by the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) in 2014, under mentorship of Marcus Holmes of Fassler Kamstra + Holmes Architects.
Presently I'm a Professional Architect. My Project Experience ranges from New Residential Architecture, Industrial Architecture, Built Heritage Conservation and Research, Restoration, Extensions and Alterations (Interior and Exterior), Construction and Project Management.
