Nico van der Meulen Architects focuses on designing innovative, luxurious homes, both contemporary and traditional, tailored to the tastes and needs of the client.

“In architecture, functionality should always be given higher priority than the form, considering we spend our entire lives inhabiting the structures we’ve designed rather than admiring their external appearances. Functionalism is our design philosophy and whilst our facades could have any form, and be associated with any style, our buildings will always remain functional.”

The practice remains at the forefront of design by exploring new forms, pushing the boundaries and evolving with technology, without compromising on the authenticity of the design, aesthetics, materials and originality.

  • It is very seldom these days that one can give a company a brief, and the message is understood and executed 100% to your satisfaction.

    I experienced just this working with Nico Van Der Meulen Architechts. They clearly knew exactly what I was looking for and what I needed to suit my lifestyle.

    The home that they created for me still excites me, and is the perfect haven that I requested from them. My home is functional, well proportioned, warm in winter and cool in summer, and I couldn’t have asked for a better designed and striking structure.Their knowledge of technical engineering and concrete work is exceptional, and their vision and foresight is unsurpassed.Many people have said to me that once they had built their first house, they would never do it again. On the contrary I would do it again, in a flash, and would only use Nico and his team.

    They are a very friendly and approachable company and no detail is ever too small or complicated for them to rectify, alter or assist you with.All drawings and submissions were on schedule and the whole process took only 16 months from design to me moving into my wonderful and much appreciated home.

    Well done Nico and team, thank you, and should I ever build again I would not hesitate to use your company.

  • It was a pleasure to work with Nico van der Meulen Architects. At inception of the design phase they easily understood my requirements while at the same time making practical recommendations. They were happy to let certain areas of the design evolve which made the project both creative and exciting. Nico van der Meulen Architects were involved in all facets of the project from original design to overseeing of the entire project on a regular basis. All facets of the house were designed in great detail and then inspected to ensure that construction was in line with the design. Recommendations were made throughout the project in order to ensure that the best possible result was achieved. All queries were promptly responded to and addressed. I would highly recommend using Nico van der Meulen Architects for any top end project.

    Owner of House in Eccleston
  • “When we decided to start the process of building our new home, we realised that we needed an architect who was not only able to design a unique, stylish house, but someone who could also design around the strict design rules of the Estate where burglar bars are not permitted. We appointed Nico van der Meulen Architects and Nico’s son, Werner, came up with amazing designs that not only met our full approval, but also met with the Estate’s Rules and Regulations. Working with Werner was easy and from the beginning our needs were understood and applied, resulting in a beautiful structure.We are very happy in our home that is viewed as one of the most spectacular in the Estate.”

    Owner of House Ber
  • “Thinking back to when we first decided to renovate our home in Louis Trichardt, we had the daunting aspect of finding the
    right architects who understood our needs and requirements, and who offered superior service, as well as after service.
    We were lucky to find your company. We love what you made of our home and it turned out to be much more than we expected. You and Werner made it look so easy.
    Thank you for standing by us and making it a good experience for our whole family. We plan to live in this home for many years to come, but should we ever need to build or renovate another home, we will certainly be back.”
