Wembley Square Apartment

Modern apartments are often short on living and storage space. I needed to use minimal design in order to decrease clutter and improve the flow of this Wembley Square apartment. Dark, plastic laminate joinery was re-coloured to lighten the spaces. The furniture I selected consisted of a dining table with benches (that could slide under…

The WGS Office Revamp

World Groupage Services Cape is a Cape Town-based company that offers international freight and logistics services. We wanted to introduce a striking  and somewhat unconventional colour scheme for the WGS office revamp and decided to use the red from the company logo, combining it with a vibrant green – the end result a modern, sleek…

Sticky Fudge: Kids Clothing Store

Sticky Fudge is a very special kids clothing store that specialises in vintage inspired, timeless clothes for little boys and girls. Naturally they wanted that olden-world feel to be captured in their first retail store in the Tyger Valley Shopping Centre. The shop front was inspired by old steel factory windows that I paneled using…

Spier Wine Estate: Wine Retail Center

The brief called for a space that paid homage to Spier Wine Estate’s heritage and traditional values. The owners are committed to sustainability and lowering the estate’s carbon footprint. Keeping this in mind an old deli building was converted; the concept being that of two barns joined by a glass transition area producing a look…

Spier Wine Estate: 8 to Go Restaurant

The 8 to Go Restaurant Interior Design project has been particularly rewarding. I was presented with an existing space and a large collection of discarded shelving and furniture from the old wine retail store. I used the materials available along with some fruit crates that were repurposed to fit together in a modular design where…

Penthouse Interior Design: Tamboerskloof

The layout to this Tamboerskloof penthouse was very unusual in that that it consists of two living “blocks” joined by a long passage. The previous owners had extended the kitchen into the lounge making it difficult to furnish. By moving some of the internal walls – even if only a few centimetres – it was…

Marcelino’s Bakery (now Eurohaus)

We were approached by a busy inner city bakery, Marcelino’s (Eurohaus) to create a cosy, informal meeting place where people could gather for a meal, coffee or something sweet. The owner bakers can be seen crafting their products in the bakery daily, using only the finest ingredients as they have done since the 1960′s. I felt the new space…

Llundudno Home Remodeling

This home remodeling project started as a bathroom renovation that the client was so happy with that we where appointed to renovate the entire house including furniture and a facelift to the tired exterior. The best thing about this house are the uninterrupted views over Llandudno Bay from every room. I wanted to create clean…

Designer Coffee Shop: Love Revenge Cappuccino

This well known coffee shop moved to a different part of the V&A which provided me the opportunity to design a fresh, modern space  with the global citizen in mind; somewhere one can sit,  rest, have a coffee or light meal with the added convenience of points to connect and power up digital devices. The…

Cafe Frank: Restaurant Design

I’ve always had a passion for restaurant design and have become increasingly involved in the creation of eateries in and around Cape Town over the past few years. Cafe Franks on Bree Street was inspired by street food and had an existing concept in place, however they had a few challenges which I was called…

Bartinney Wine & Champagne Bar

The Bartinney Wine & Champagne Bar has one of the nicest old timber shop fronts I’ve seen and I made use of it by converting one of the windows into a flap with a ledge below so people can sit on either side.The layout of Bartinney’s is compact, with an antique serving counter being the…

Bacoa Chair Design

I was approached by Spanish restaurant Bacoa to design a chair made from recycled materials to be used in their Barcelona eateries. The chair design had to incorporate safe storage for handbags and shopping so I made use of a standard plastic crate  with planks as the seat – all joined together by a  metal…
