Architecture has a remarkable power to shape our surroundings and influence our emotions; The way light filters through a window, the curve of a bridge, or the harmony of a cityscape can all shift the way we navigate a particular space. In South Africa, a few buildings can be regarded as amazing modern buildings such as The Leonardo in Sandton, the Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre in Limpopo, and even the Circa Gallery here in Rosebank. 1000 Concepts is an architecture and design company founded by Mmutla Phalafala in 2017. The company’s focus lies in creating customised solutions for modernising residential and commercial spaces, all while using design as a medium to convey unique stories. Their approach centres on integrated architectural interior design that prioritises empathy and a user-centric perspective.
