Dark Horse Design Studio is a Cape Town based Architecture & Interior Design studio.

With the intention of creating modern structures that are warmly minimal with careful considerations of light, space and the unique qualities of each project’s location and client. We’re focused on the craft and how things come together, with a deep respect for making things, spaces and buildings. Fundamental to our mission is the notion that a space, thoughtfully executed, can elevate the body and mind of its inhabitants and bring us closer together.

Crafting something is a journey and whether it be home or a commercial project, the right fit and vision is key.  We aim to provide strong design, respect for materials and professional execution that results in a space that is uniquely yours.
