Completely visionary. Curiously creative. Unwaveringly trusted.

Holloway and Davel Architects is a South African, Cape Town and Hermanus-based Architect and Interior Decorating Studio. 

We are known for our adventurous aesthetic, quality craftsmanship and inspired approach towards each project. 

Founded in 2014 by Daleen Holloway, the design firm has pushed the boundaries of architecture & interior design trends, establishing itself as a fearless leader in the creation of truly one-of-a-kind spaces locally and internationally. 

The boutique design studio delivers beautiful, sustainable and extraordinary designs globally for some of the most prestigious and respected names in their fields.

A creative cross-pollination in the studio inherently informs our architecture and interior projects and furniture, lighting, textiles, home décor and product designs of every scale.



Holloway and Davel Architects delivers bespoke designs in the commercial, hospitality, residential and multi-family spaces, drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as fashion, nature, film, art and global culture.

“Designing a building is a lovely journey, and keeping the client involved with each step is what makes the process beautiful” 

We believe that every project has a unique soul, just as distinctive as each client. Establishing what is authentic, appropriate and contextualized and doing so in a sustainable manner is the most challenging and rewarding of tasks.

We are honoured and humbled to have worked on iconic projects, ranging from 2 months to 9 years, with visionary clients – private individuals, respected industry leaders, hoteliers, homeowners, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, philanthropists, all clients appreciative of the power of good design.




Integrity is at the core of how we operate. We openly collaborate in pursuit of the truth. We constantly push ourselves to be our best, we focus on solutions, and we arrive every day inspired to make an impact through our talents, passion and hard work. We honour our word and choose candour, respect and kindness.



Creativity is the language that binds us together. Creativity is at the core of our work, it’s the essence of who we are and what we do. We innovate and push for boundless creativity through curiosity. Creativity is embedded in our very being. We are adaptable, insightful and most of all innovative.



It’s in everything we do. Together we are stronger. We deliver more success through shared goals and mutual support. We collaborate within our team, with our clients, and with all of our trades and suppliers. Everybody’s ideas count. Everybody has a voice.



Purpose moves us. The world is our community. When we include and respect people from all walks of life, we create a better, stronger company and a better, stronger world. We are united by the belief that real people can—and should—drive real change. Made stronger by our team’s unique personalities, passions and pride, we set out every day to make the world a bit bolder and a bit brighter.



At Holloway and Davel Architects we strive for excellence and we pride ourselves on quality. We emphasize great artisanship right from the early stages of design to completion of a project. We work together, across boundaries, to meet the needs of our clients.



We are constantly evolving and attempting to push the boundaries in our Design practice. 

We innovate and push for boundless creativity through curiosity. Good design differentiates us from our competition
