JCA is a small architectural firm based in Cape Town, South Africa that specializes in luxury family homes. Jacky, who is the principal architect, started the practice in 1995 and believes in a holistic approach and involvement from inception to completion. Drawings are presented in 3D on both Autocad and Revet and clients are encouraged to explore their favourite architecture and interiors with the architects.
Contextualisation, innovation, comfort and respect of the environment are fundamental aspects of our designs. Spaces are meant to challenge and inspire to create a joyous retreat for the family to relax. Stages of work and professional fees are similar to those proposed by SACAP and JCA is a member of SAIA and CIFA.
JCA typically work with a professional team, including Keith Cattell Quantity Surveyor and Meny-Gibert Consulting Engineers.
Rob Henson contributes to the practice with his extensive knowledge of computer technology enabling us to produce sketches in 3D, making it much easier for clients to understand the projects.
Keith is the professor at UCT in Construction Economics and Management and frequently works on JCA projects as the independent quantity surveyor.
