Cape Town is on fire, creatively-speaking of course. Not only has the Mother City been announced as the World Design Capital for the year 2014, but creatives continue to wow us with work of a stellar level.

 

Design Indaba is happy to announce the winners of the Your Street Cape Town Challenge. The seven finalists included:

 

  • Verena Grips (Matchbox).
  • Luke Pedersen, Jenny Pedersen, Kirsty Rielly, Jess Pedersen and Katherine Spindler (Violet’s Walk).
  • Lorena Pasquini, Mark Henning, Caitlynne Francis and Hannah Williams (Acre Road, Kensington).
  • Andrew Cole, Rene Bakker, Andrea Ferry and Pieter H Botha (Let Us Grow).
  • Ashley Stemmet, Porky Hefer and Tsai (Urban Mosaic).
  • Sonja Spamer (Kidz-Up City).
  • Joe Schutzer-Weissman and Gerald van Wyk (Jamshack).

 

They presented their respective proposals in front of a jury explaining how each project would “enhance an aspect of city life using design”.

 

The winners:

 

Acre Road, Kensington – Pasquini, Henning, Francis and Williams proposed using low-cost facilities to cater for positive activities in the community and it won them R100 000 to implement their plan.
