About Us


We believe that architecture should involve and inspire end users, be environmentally sustainable, cost effective, innovative and creative. We believe that architecture must be borne from pragmatic responses to project programs, sites and typologies.

Practice Profile

Involving Architecture was established by Paulo L.C da Costa in July 2009 in Durban, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Prior to this, Paulo practiced as Paulo Luis da Costa – Pr Architect, since 1997.

The development of our client base has included commissions from local and nationally based private companies and local government. We regularly take on smaller projects from the private client sector.

The practice has adopted a policy of immediate response to accommodate a wide range of client requirements and continues to invest for growth.

In 2013, Andre Roosenschoon joined the practice as partner.  Both partners are well grounded in the technical and design realms and assume equal responsibility for the practice and its activities.

Our office is located in Pinetown-Westmead. The resources of the practice allow us to take on projects of varying complexity and size with the two partners maintaining a “hands on” collaborative approach. We also work with specialist consultants who help support our workload when required.
