THE ROCK

INTERIOR DESIGN : PREMIERE DESIGN STUDIO | PHOTOGRAPHY : PIERRE BASSANI

Interior design firm , Premiere Design Studio ( Premiere ), was appointed to carry out the architectural design detailing and implementation co-ordination for the The Rock and Carnelian at The Rock at the Design Quarter in Fourways .

Brief The brief was to design something totally different to what has been seen in South Africa before . The designers worked together with a designer from Greece – Alex Nicolaou of Workroom 2 – who put together the design concept which formed the basis of the theme . The mandate was to work with Alex and make sure that architecturally this concept would work in the space , not only spatially , but also from an aesthetic , maintenance and operational point of view for the South African market .
Together with the exceptionally experienced client , the design team managed to pull this off . Communicating via Skype with Alex and exchanging ideas and solutions , they arrived at a great design concept that would now need to be developed by Premiere Design Studio into a workable and architecturally sound interior .
Parallel to this , Tarryn Fisher from Breezewood Interiors worked on using locally sourced items , furniture and light fittings to assist the concepts in becoming a reality on site . Premiere ’ s next port-of-call was all the architectural construction drawings and documents that would form the basis of the costing and the final interior build . During this phase much design development was required and the Premiere designers finalised all design challenges that the existing site presented them with .
