5th Generation Architecture

was founded by Marilize Snyman-Harvey in 2007 and has gradually grown into a practice delivering excellent designs and buildings with great added value to our clients. Our reputation is being built on providing simple yet stunning design solutions for individual client needs. We are committed to deliver exceptional and affordable designs, believing that good architecture and design should be available to everyone.

Marilize has a wide range of skills and knowledge with special interest and specialist knowledge in the design of low energy, sustainable timber frame buildings, having designed and in a few cases, built small low energy timber structures.

Marilize is particularly interested in producing buildings appropriate for the local context, using traditional materials and modern techniques in a contemporary way to produce one off design solutions and buildings that complement our natural and built environments.

From our base in Hardwick, 5th Generation Architecture is involved in a variety of projects across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk and further afield in South Africa. We specialise in residential refurbishment and renovation, transforming rural and urban properties for future generations.

Marilize pride herself on attention to detail, both in the sustainability of her designs and in the service she provide to her clients. Whether you are an individual, a housing association or a developer, 5th Generation Architecture would be delighted to hear from you.
