Gerhard Architect

“A passionate, award-winning and proudly South African architectural firm.” We believe in architecture without reference and a client centred, sustainably driven and progressively modern approach. From our inception in 2006, our aim has been to provide cutting edge, yet affordable, eco-friendly architecture, enabling the client to become an integral part of the design process. The Director, Gerhard Breedt, is a design review architect for several of the local estates, including Zimbali Estate, Mount Richmore Estate, Simbithi Eco-Estate, Hill Top, Palm Lakes and Westbrook Beach Club Estate. We undertake residential, government, educational and health sector, industrial and commercial sector projects.


“Thank you for all of the effort and work put into our beautiful home, Gerhard! Although there was much debate and backwards and forwards, I think we have achieved an amazing end result. You are the best!” – Laura Watts (Simbithi client)

We specialise in creating beautiful homes for the residents on the North Coast and are experts in kitchen and bathroom design. Our team, with over 10 years’ experience, provides a full one-stop service, starting the process with a personal consultation followed by a detailed quotation. We then take full-site measurements or house plans to create 3D models to make a set of 3D visualisation designs of your renovation or new build so that you can ensure you are fully satisfied before we start on site. Then, all that is left for our experienced team of skilled electricians, plumbers, carpenters and decorators to do is get to work, turning the concept to reality! It’s our mission to help our clients succeed in their mission, by working closely with our clients and becoming a strategic partner in our joint quest to dream, create and inspire.

Refreshed Store

Refreshed Store is a family collaboration where design meets beauty. The store is very much a mixed-use space with each area serving a purpose perfect for each creator to perform to their best ability, offering home décor, design, hair, nails and beauty. Tracy, from Refreshed Designs, designed the interiors from floor to ceiling with space planning and function where nothing is less than unique, such as incorporating her mother’s (Sharon from Refreshed Home) beautifully handcrafted pottery and stained glass products which have been perfected over the past 30 years. Tracy is able to think out the box, be creative, visualise, and deliver when it comes to interior design. Having many years of experience in the field has enabled her to build longstanding relationships with shopfitters, finishes, furniture and fabric suppliers, where anything and everything is possible. If you can think it, we can do it!
