WESTERN CAPE (Cape Town) and GAUTENG (Johannesburg) :
Ebesa Architects are professional service providers in all fields of architecture and project management, specialising in commercial and office buildings, housing schemes, civic centres, industrial and health facilities as well as green building design.

The original practice, Engelbrecht & Bester Architects, was established in Bellville in 1977 by the partners Piet Engelbrecht and André Bester. Engelbrecht & Bester Architects developed into one of the leading medium to large architectural practices in the Western Cape Province of South Africa.

The partnership was responsible for, and successfully completed, several landmark projects in the larger Cape Town area, as is evident from our list of over 700 projects and contracts executed.

To accommodate changing trends and market requirements of the new South Africa, a new company was created – Ebesa Architects was established on 1 January 2006. The total staff component and obligations of the former partnership were taken over by Ebesa Architects. There are four professional architects as directors in management, of which PAC Engelbrecht is the managing director.
