Jochen Ewe and Anke Huerkamp have already completed projects independently with a group of fellow students in their student years and worked with and for other architecture and design offices. The Arche 18 has worked in diverse groups since then in Dusseldorf and predominantly in Cologne as a specialised comprehensive partnership of designers, architects and interior designers/decorators. In 2002 the first work began in South Africa and in 2005 the company eweARCHITECTURE was established in Cape Town. Jochen Ewe und Anke Huerkamp have completed projects in and around the areas of Cape Town, Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Devon Valley and Gordons Bay. Depending on the complexity and extent of the projects different communities are addressed and the necessary independent co-workers are invited to enhance the team. Since 2007 the business is based in Somerset West.
