Company Profile


Daniel & Associates Architects is a specialist firm involved in strategic projects, which draws on a wide experience of 35 years of architectural practice, covering a wide range of project types. These include Urban Design through architectural projects to Industrial Design products. The projects range from small-scale residential to large industrial developments, as well as convention centres, educational facilities, hotels and offices.

The practice was originally set up in Durban in 1976 by Ivor Daniel. In 1978 a new firm under the style of Daniel & Associates was established. This practice received recognition and publication for a number of projects in the fields of conservation and industrial architecture. In 1985 the practice merged with Stauch Vorster Architects (SVA) of which Ivor Daniel became a director, responsible for the design and marketing portfolio. He later became the Managing Director of Stauch Vorster Architects (Durban), responsible for “design delivery” throughout all projects. In 2002 he established a branch office of SVA in Dubai, which closed in 2007. In 2008 he re-opened the original practice, Daniel & Associates, with a compliment of young talented architects. The practice is a small but select design oriented consultancy.
