Established by Jaco Wasserfall in 2004 as Jaco Wasserfall Architects Incorporated the firm has been under the directorship of Jaco Wasserfall, he is an active member of the Namibian Institute of Architects and is registered with the Namibian Council for Architects and Quantity Surveyors.
A truly Namibian firm, Jaco Wasserfall Architects Inc. offers a wide range of professional expertise and technical resources to its clients.
The firm’s business philosophy is aimed at maintaining the full spectrum of management and professional skills at principal level, supported by the best technology available and a creative staff component.
High levels of skill in the fields of innovative design and presentation, technical documentation, contract administration, the general management of projects, and that of the practice itself ensure a service offering of a high order.
From concept vision through to the final delivery of the realised project Jaco Wasserfall Architects Incorporated is committed to fulfilling the aspirations and expectations of its clients by scrupulously understanding the project brief and formulating and managing an appropriate and specific response that accommodates stakeholders, the particulars of the project context and the professional design team.
The firm’s design philosophy is always to try and transcend the ordinaries of the project brief in an attempt to pursue the poetic and artistic dimensions of architecture. Work is founded on principles of design efficiency and buildability within a truthful and practical design idiom.
Given the relative isolation of the local industry Jaco Wasserfall Architects Incorporated endeavors at every opportunity to subject its work to peer review as a means of benchmarking it against regional and global standards. This custom has led to a number of awards being conferred upon the firm and, together with its history of intermittently partnering with architects outside Namibia, provides instrumental criticism while signposting opportunities for further development.
