solutions - by design


We are currently taking a break from Architecture.

Whilst Andy Chase and Stauch and Partners will retain full registration and membership with both the NIA and the NCAQS, we do not employ any staff, and, for the foreseeable future, we will not be engaging with clients or projects in the traditional role of Architect.

With over 25 years of experience as a practitioner, Andy will remain available to consult on any aspects of Architecture and the associated Construction Industry.


STAUCH AND PARTNERS ARCHITECT draws on a rich history of design excellence in Namibia since its beginnings in 1955.

The Practice has its origins in Windhoek in the 1950’s under Helmut Stauch, also the erstwhile founder of Stauch Vorster Architects (SVA International)

Over the years under the ownership and management of many partners and directors, our studio has served as a thinktank of ideas, where design solutions were tested and explored. Using cutting edge technology, our clients have benefited from enjoying designs solutions by way of 3D animation for an experiential understanding of their unique design solutions.

We are proud to have been able to make a contribution to our society, by way of our bursary scheme. Since Namibia Independence, we have been committed to investing into Namibia and its people, and our bursary scheme has seen a handful of aspiring architects benefitting from financial assistance while studying, and employment thereafter, as a steppingstone to a career in the industry.

Through intensive client architect dialogue, we have developed appropriate and innovative design solutions for each of our many projects in response to the specific needs of each individual commission and client.

We are grateful to have been given opportunities to participate in projects of all scale, serving clients in public and private sectors, and are proud to have made a significant contribution to our industry, and to the built environment of Namibia.
