About

Raymond
An early fascination with space lead me on a journey to explore sculpture, interior design, product design, architecture and later – heritage management in the Overberg and Boland areas – cultivating a vast frame of reference and broad spectrum of life experiences. Today, it is the critical conversation about space-making which inspires me. If negotiated properly a new work can lead to an expression which reflects something about a place in time, or in Friedrich Hegel’s words: “holding your time in thought,” while possessing timeless qualities.
Even though the practice of design is regarded as an activity which involves dialogue and negotiation to build relationships among a variety of concerns including social, political, cultural, environmental, theoretical, practical, technological and economics, I regard design also as a playful experience in exploring space, through materials, texture, line and light – we express ourselves in space.
To ensure quality projects, which requires enough time to explore possibilities, this practice only accepts a limited number of projects per year.
Associates
This practice engages associates who are also passionate about spatial poetry on a project-need basis.
