Nick Olivier

As a person who loves travel, which led to an academic exchange in Belgium as a student, Nick is constantly interested in the architecture and communities of the world.  Whether ancient or contemporary, rural or urban, awareness of the global built environment and its effect on people continues to influence his design appreciation.

Jerome Starkey

// Knysna Principal

Jerome Starkey

As an architect that is concerned with both the built environment and the philosophical nuances of the world in which we exist, design emphasis revolves around both the aesthetic of the product and the effect of that aesthetic. Extensive experience in designing and detailing upmarket executive homes has allowed skills to be honed in a way that produces great quality within budget.
