Our studio

Corné von Bratt
Founder & Director

Corné grew up on the Garden Route, moving to Cape Town in 1998 to study architecture where he went on to win 2 national design awards. With a multitude of architectural experience already behind him within practices in Cape Town and gaining leadership skills through managing projects in Namibia, Corné founded Think3D in 2009.

He had forged his niche within the field of 3D visualisation, successfully combining his innate understanding of architectural design, photography and technology. The vision was simple: to create a vibrant, energetic 3D design studio, focusing on a very personal collaborative relationship with all clients, whilst striving for the highest quality product.

The operational side of the business is situated in Gardens, in the heart of Cape Town’s vibrant city bowl.  It boasts stunning views of Table Mountain, a source of daily inspiration in itself.  Winter time provides us with sunsets where it is guaranteed no two are ever the same. We are proud to have some of the top skills, creative vision and technical know how that the 3D visualisation market has to offer.

Always delivering with passion, efficiency and the upmost professionalism and approachable manner, we are a trusted partner and collaborator. We produce some of the most innovative and high quality marketing material, providing an essential tool for architects, interior designers, developers and digital agencies.
