The International Design & Architecture Awards 2021: Volume II

The Designers Hall Make The Shortlist

The Designers Hall took on the full renovation of the private villa’s formal living and dining room with the challenge of creating a luxurious yet liveable design. Their client did not have a particular style in mind for the space, and was open to the designers’ intentions – the brief given to The Designers Hall was for the space to look original and expansive, yet easy to the eye.

Shortlisted for Interior Design Scheme – Global, and Living Space – Global

Tell us a little more about yourself and your daily inspirations…
I love nature – I start every day horse riding, I own a beautiful Chestnut gelding called Integrity. He brings me close to nature and sets my tone in design for the days. I love leading my team and brainstorming with them. I love empowering students to enable them to fulfil their career potential in our design field in South Africa.

Look Back At 2019

The relocation of a young family to the owner’s childhood community is what prompted Elphick Proome Architects’ (EPA) client to build a new house on a partially platformed site in Westville North. A substantial piece of land was procured, offering extraordinary views of the Palmiet Nature Reserve and the opportunity for their children to walk to the local school. EPA created a bold, yet sensitively composed family home characterized by a relaxed, contemporary African feel.
