Ursula Gouws’ career trajectory has been anything but conventional. Starting in her native South Africa on projects such as wildlife reserves, she soon had her own practice before moving to Australia and DKO in 2015.
Taking on the mantel of DKO’s large residential projects, her almost 30 years of experience has been of great benefit for continual client relations and the efficiency and coordination of her teams. Ursula always sees her work holistically and with a strong contractual background, is able to see projects through across all phases. Her approach to architecture always responds to both context and process, a strategic vision that puts her at the heart of some of the practice’s most dynamic projects.
Ursula draws inspiration from within the diverse group of people within DKO’s team and is committed to the growth and mentorship of those around her.
