PA Talks 11 – Stefan Antoni
Stefan Antoni completed his Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Cape Town in 1985 with a first-class pass. In 1987 he set up the architectural practice Stefan Antoni Architects, which today is known as SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.
SAOTA, a leading firm of architects is driven by the dynamic combination of Stefan Antoni, Philip Olmesdahl, Greg Truen, Phillippe Fouché, and Mark Bullivant who share a potent vision easily distinguished in their design.
This, paired with both an innovative and dedicated approach to the design, documentation, and execution of projects globally, has seen SAOTA become an internationally sought-after brand. SAOTA has a global footprint with projects on six continents.
This success is driven by a design philosophy that connects function and form, and the pursuit of true architectural design to create appropriate solutions. The focus on achieving maximum value has also led to global invitations to design, build and create highly prestigious projects. Increased exposure to the global marketplace has seen SAOTA flourish as cities and contexts allow for infinite inspiration which can be seen radiating from the approach to design.
SAOTA is also focused on using the most current computer technology in its design process, both to understand the design and to communicate the design to our clients.
Antoni is regarded as one of a number of architects who have contributed to setting a new standard of design and professionalism in the top end of the domestic market in South Africa.
