Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects, known as SAOTA, is a dynamic architectural firm whose work is recognizable all over the world! The leading firm of architects is run by Stefan Antoni, Philip Olmesdahl, Greg Truen, Phillippe Fouché, and Mark Bullivant. This talented group of architects has transformed SAOTA into an attractive brand, which everyone wants to work with!
SAOTA Architects at Work
SAOTA offers services to the corporate, institutional, commercial and residential marketplace. They have projects on 6 different continents, and while their roots are strong in their home country of South Africa, approximately 85% of their clients are from Moscow, Sydney, Miami, Dubai, and Lagos.
SAOTA perfectly understands the market they work in thus allowing them to create custom architectural projects in each of them. A powerful connection between function and form drives the firm’s incredible success.
On every project, SAOTA uses the most recent computer technology. Not only to understand the design but also to communicate the design to their clients.
“We strive to promote a service marked by excellence both in our buildings and in addressing the needs of our clients, with the focus on high standards & elegance.”
Sister Company ARRCC
The synergy between SAOTA and sister interior design company ARRCC is perfectly reflected in many of their projects. In fact, director Mark Rielly started ARRCC after studying and working at SAOTA for many years.
Rielly realized that his true passion was interior architecture and design. However, he said that SAOTA’s work inspires him every day.
We can’t wait to see what this South African design powerhouse creates next!
