The ethos of both Charlotte Chamberlain & Nicola Irving Architects and Tarna Klitzner Landscape Architects is rooted in providing environments that are conceptualized within an understanding of the given natural and social environments. Their endeavor is to provide spaces for human interaction that encourage positive engagement within communities and within the broader context of our cities, towns and natural landscapes. They see this as only possible through collective thinking and actions.
Both Nicola Irving and Tarna Klitzner are involved as part time teachers in the Landscape and Architectural faculties at the University of Cape Town. This has given them the opportunity of continuing conversations in the realm of the studio.
Both practices have actively engaged in the placement and design of a variety of building typologies and their contexts for over 20 years. Many of the projects have achieved national recognition across both disciplines, for the collective, cross-disciplinary nature of the way the offices work in the making of built spaces that are not binary, but embedded within their specific contextual special experience.
