Sebastian van Greunen
Development Manager

Sebastian is earning a reputation in the South African architectural design industry as somewhat of a specialist ‘out-of-the-box’, thinker. Kicking off his architectural career with the likes of Stefan Antoni Architects and DHK Architects has served him well and allowed him many an opportunity to explore his creative side.

His affinity for commercial and multi-storey developments has taken him as far afield as Australia and Malta, where he worked as a design partner on various international projects.

The boomerang effect returned him to South Africa, where he has established himself as a sought-after commodity in the Cape Town property arena. Recognising opportunities and adding his design flair is one of his strengths and he has fittingly partnered with the Flyt team to continue his work in the field that he loves.
