Wolff is a design studio concerned with developing an architectural practice of consequence through the mediums of design, advocacy, research, and documentation. Based in Cape Town, the Wolff team is led by Ilze and Heinrich Wolff who work collaboratively with a group of highly skilled, committed, and engaged architects, creative practitioners and administrators.

“The work of Wolff Architects is rooted in developing an attitude around spatial practice that is broad and non-hegemonic. We work towards developing an architecture of consequence. The talk will present some ideas coming out of the work of our studio that illustrates some of these attitudes including: restorative justice, embedded research, and of course, juicy design aesthetics. In other words, our creative output considers the past in terms of how to act restoratively and imaginatively when making interventions into the present.”
