Client Oriented

The core philosophy of Quintessential Design and its owner is client orientated. State-of-the-art computer technology is used in the design process to create three dimensional models for clients to get the complete picture before a brick is laid. Attention to detail, key to Quintessential, a world leader in the use of Revit, is further characterised by development of virtual reality tools to ensure client approval from start to finish.

CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE

The philosophy of this contemporary architecture firm is also embodied in the spirit of enquiry that flourishes amongst its staff. This spirit not only guides the firm, but enables it to maintain its position as definitive designers in a highly competitive and fast-changing industry, both nationally and internationally.

PASSION

Each of Quintessential’s projects reflects Brent Rahme’s passion for precision and splendour. The vision and values of this Johannesburg based architecture firm are encapsulated in Brent’s words; “It is our belief that exemplary architecture not only provides functional space, but also acts as a lens through which we view, understand and appreciate the natural and man-made world. In this way, architecture can offer order, beauty and inspiration. Architecture, as we view it, is art.”

Avant-garde architect, Brent Rahme and his contemporary architectural firm, Quintessential Design, are leaving their distinctive mark on the South African landscape for current and future generations to admire and enjoy.

a tradition of excellence

Architects don’t make anything. Our say in how well a building is built is limited to a set of instructions we provide. The end people that actually build it have little to no actual interaction with the architect. This means our instructions better be good, and just as important, easy to understand.

This introductory presentation describes and analyzes the theories, strategies, and tools of creative design for the purposes of practical work. With thoughtfulness and expertise, it opens the reader’s eyes to the processes that underlie design and demonstrates different ways of communicating about complex design work.

However, experimenting with different models of social regeneration through architecture is the driving principle of the studio’s work.

Architecture begins where engineering ends.

– John Deo
