Now in its 10’th year, the Young Designer Award is our endeavour to raise industry standards and encourage design students to explore the sub specialty of residential design.

Our Ultimate Intervention – for many of our local colleges, the taught curriculum focuses on commercial and hospitality design.

At Design Intervention, residential design is our passion. We feel that by crafting people’s homes, their personal spaces, we can have the most impact: we can literally improve lives.

We believe that residential design can be the most rewarding and satisfying career choice for an aspiring designer and the Young Designers Award is our attempt to promote excellence in our industry and share our passion with the designers of tomorrow.
