After gaining international experience and working for prestigious local upmarket residential architectural practices, Francois Geldenhuys and Jennifer Bath established Bath Associates during 2013.

What informs our architectural principles and the spirit of our design approach?

We believe in an architectural approach that strives to create a sense of meaningful place, through celebrating the indoor-outdoor connection between built form and environment.

We aim to achieve a timeless quality to our buildings, through the use of clear, understated contemporary forms and materials, and responding sensitivity to nature and the environment.

Our buildings respond to the clients’ lifestyle needs by providing expansive spaces for elegant living and entertaining, as well as more private, intimate spaces for calm and relaxation.

Connection to nature and awareness of the environment are important themes in our designs, promoting environmentally conscious buildings, and sustainable building practices, by prioritizing low maintenance materials, which are responsibly sourced.

The ultimate goal of the architect is to create a paradise.  Every house, every product of architecture should be a fruit of our endeavour to build an earthly paradise for people.
