The Young Designer’s Award is our endeavour to raise industry standards and encourage design students to explore the sub speciality of residential design.
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.
The design of your home is as important to your wellbeing as good food and exercise. Your home should be your sanctuary, a place to recharge, restore and rejuvenate.
The best homes are not about the stuff you put in them but the feeling they give you and understanding what soothes each homeowner is the starting point of my design process.
My approach is personalized and multisensory,
to help my clients harness the power of their home for happier, healthier lives.

The client requires separate wet and dry kitchens and a laundry area. The wife likes cooking. She wants a kitchen with an island so the kids can hang out with her while she cooks.
