Khaya is an interior design practice founded on the philosophy that intelligent design is collaborative, without ego and enhances the wellbeing of all people that occupy the space.

Established in 2009 we have the experience & proven track record of delivering projects that meet the usual criteria of on time and on time budget. But almost more importantly we deliver projects that have a strong working relationship that aligns the client and project team with a shared vision.

We take pride in being easy to work with, responsive and flexible. And of course, in delivering excellent design!
