L A Design Studio was founded in 1995 by architect Les Abbott with the view to providing a personal and friendly but professional architectural service to discerning clients.
Careful consideration for the practical aspects of architectural design while meeting the individual lifestyle needs of clients has been the hallmark of the designs that he has produced.
His early background in structural engineering has given him a good understanding of building dynamics and design. Successful projects range from beachfront apartments and executive homes to townhouse developments and residential alterations. He has also designed many low and hi-tech industrial and commercial complexes.
He is based in Hermanus.
The company motto:
"It takes effort to create good design but a good design is always worth the effort."
"My involvement as the Technical and Marketing Manager on the All About Building website has added a new dimension to my practice and has given me the opportunity to educate and assist the general public on many issues relating to the building industry."
