Riscali Architects & Structural Engineers | Structural Art is Visual Therapy

Riscali works to accommodate your every Architectural desire into one masterpiece. With Artists working alongside highly skilled, in-house ECSA registered Structural Engineers. Riscali seamlessly composes symphonies of structural beauty and visual pleasure, at the leisure of our large base of long-time loyal clients & associates in the building industry. Riscali works quite different to the industry norm, in that we’ve never approached any project “by the book”, and don’t ever intend to do so. Your first meeting with our team will be accompanied by an open invitation by asking you to be comfortable enough to tell us that you like nothing about your first proposal if that should be the case, and most clients do. And we couldn’t be more thrilled! Every time we wipe down and rebuild the drawing board itself is a journey and learning path for us too, and we love it! We have no idea what “the book” says about how to approach clients in a generic repetitive template, reason why to be quite honest, its boring and way too much effort to build a one size fits all approach. We love getting to know our clients too much. If our social journeys with clients is bad for our business, at least we have fun doing it! We have set rates for various designs, and we also have negotiations that vary from client to client, the human factor is very much alive at Riscali, and we have a family legacy stretching back decades in Architecture and Engineering. We are aware of what a commitment and expense it is to build a home, and we want yours to be perfect before the first brick drops the ground. We work with various firms throughout South Africa and even as far as Spain and the Netherlands. We do offer entire package services that include engineering. This does streamline the design process by saving our clients time, the structural challenges are solved without meetings between clients and two appointed professionals. However, if our clients want only a single segment of our services, we happily work alongside other professionals in this industry we love.
