Hi, I’m Sean Wessels. I am a tech enthusiast and a lover of the outdoors. But most of all, I have a passion for the things we build for people.
Wessels Architects was founded by my father Andre Wessels in the mining town of Welkom in the Free State during its boom years in the 1970s.
Much of our company’s experience was forged here through our work on a wide range of infrastructure projects such as schools, prisons and hospitals.
I moved to Durban in 2014 to tackle new and existing projects.
Architecture is not just about buildings. It’s about people.
We approach all our projects from a people-first perspective. Our philosophy is to never let the building get in the way of what is truly important.
We understand that at any scale, we must do things together.
Whether we are working towards our sustainability goals; additions to a home; or planning a hospital, we can only achieve success by collaborating with a wide range of partners.
We are all in it together, far, and near.
