LVDW Architects was initially established in 1980 as Leach & vd Walt  Architects in Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal.


The practice has been involved in the design, documentation, and administration of hundreds of building projects over the past thirty years for clients in the private sector, parastatals, and various State Departments.  The projects range from shops, offices, factories, to institutional projects such as schools, courts, police stations, clinics, hospitals, magistrate’s courts and multi-skilled development centers.


LVDW Architects use the latest CAD software to produce stunning 3D visualizations and technical documentation for each project.


We have completed multiple projects for the Department of Public Works such as the new Civic centre for the local municipality in Newcastle, and various schools.


We design for the private sector as well, ranging from houses to museums.


We work on private and public educational facilities, ranging from small rural schools to high schools and colleges.
