our why

We help discerning property investors create spaces that accommodate healthy, sustainable lifestyles that maintain a connection to nature. Our unique brand of Eco-Architecture aims to replace typical claustrophobic and unhealthy buildings with beautiful spaces that look and feel in harmony with the natural environment.

This type of architecture can boost investment value for owners, improve profitability for developers and create safe, comfortable spaces that improve quality of life for inhabitants. It can solve seemingly insurmountable problems in unexpected ways and forever change the way we interact with our man-made as well as our natural environment.


Xeno-Urban Architects is a SACAP registered architecture firm with the highest category of professional registration. We are based in George in the Western Cape's Garden route and we actively render our services throughout the entire region. We know how to imbue our projects with the right mix of quality, innovation and sustainability while we leverage our knowledge of local conditions and suppliers to realise the highest possible standard of projects possible in the region. We do this while working closely with our clients to make sure each project is uniquely suited to best fit their needs and desires.


We also engage in joint ventures, partnerships and project initiation and are willing to negotiate custom service structures to suit unique project conditions.

We use the latest technologies in cloud computing and project management software to run a 'virtual' office with flexible teams working remotely from different locations while always being securely connected with the latest information. We also use the most advanced 3D and BIM software the industry has to offer to create detailed virtual buildings to be experienced in realistic 3D before a single brick is laid. This improves coordination and communication to make sure that design vision and constructed reality are closely aligned. 



We offer multiple individual services and combined packages to suit the unique needs and budgets of all our clients. To learn more about the packages we offer, just click the button below.


Our Values

At Xeno-Urban Architects we believe in conducting every part of our business in a way that demonstrates integrity, honesty and professionalism. We aim to elevate the expression of these values not only in our own work, but throughout the building industry in the Garden Route which is notably lacking in these areas. We keep ourselves and all the professionals we work with to the highest standards of these values to give our clients and colleagues peace of mind when Xeno-Urban Architects is involved with a project.
