In 2016, we were a part of the 2016 season of SABC 3 Afternoon Express, Win A Home, TV Show. This included 20 live and pre-recorded TV appearances, tracking the progress of three young and passionate design contestants as they each got to decorate an apartment at the Val de Vie Polo Village on the prestigious Val De Vie Estate in the Cape Winelands. We designed the architecture and interior architecture of the polo pad, and the brief to the young designers was to mirror the feel of the modern winelands architecture.
Selected from hundreds of entries, Minenhle Ntuli, Rudolph Jordaan and Juane Venter, were the three finalists who transformed the empty apartments into luxury spaces, and were mentored by local magazine editors from Visi, Elle Decoration and Real Estate. Rudolph Jordaan won the design challenge which included a six month internship with us as part of his prize. Both Juane Venter, the viewer’s choice, and Minenhle Ntuli were offered a two month internship.
It was great to share our design expertise as part of this dynamic show.
