dhk Architects scoops prestigious SAPOA Excellence Award

Prominent national architectural firm dhk Architects claimed first place in the SAPOA 2011 Excellence Awards in the Other category for its work on the innovative UWC Life Sciences development.  The Life Sciences building at the University of the Western Cape is a modern, sophisticated institutional research laboratory which has fused six departments into a single multi-functional academic development.

Chairman of dhk Architects, Derick Henstra said,” our focus and commitment as an architectural firm is to design fit-for-purpose developments on time and on budget, while creating spaces that reflect contemporary as well as functional design.  Our emphasis is also to promote sustainable projects that contribute to the natural as well as built environment – UWC is just one such development – a building which reflect urban re-invention and rejuvenation and combines various elements to create a imposing and lasting landmark.”
