Khora Group is an architectural design firm, with a focus on green building and property renewal, through the application of strategies for the improved environmental performance and cost-impact of buildings.
Khora Group was formed for the purpose of creating and facilitating sustainable urban environments. We aim to design built environments which enable emerging conditions, by addressing the city of the past, while building the city of the future. Our architecture aims to respond to the changing needs of society and contribute to creating spatially just cities.
Our vision is to:
Accelerate energy-efficient building in South Africa through the design of new green buildings, as well as the design of adaptive re-use strategies for old buildings, for the provision of sustainable and affordable accommodation close to economic opportunities and educational hubs.

Khora Group applies Integrated Green Building Design – a holistic approach which combines design specialisms, usually considered in isolation, to:
- Optimise water and energy usage and cost
- Conserve natural resources
- Generate less waste and
- Provide healthier spaces for occupants.
We consider both the 1) the structure and 2) the application of processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle, including:
- Renovation and
Our mission is to achieve the triple bottom line of ‘people, planet and profit’, by designing buildings not only for a profit, but also for the:
- Improved performance,
- Environmental sustainability,
- Energy-efficiency and
- Cost impact
of each building that we design, keeping in mind future generations.
“The one constant in life is change, so something as permanent as a building – a platform for living, learning and exchange – has layers which should be added or removed as the city (and its people) evolve and therefore needs to be inherently adaptable.”
Katlego Mothapo, Founder & Director
Our team is made up of registered architects and property professionals, who collaborate in an effort to produce sustainable living environments, which are not only well-designed and considered, but also aesthetically pleasing.
