Upper Brook Street, London

Our brief for this two bedroom duplex apartment on Upper Brook Street, Mayfair, includes rethinking the internal layout to facilitate the needs of our client allowing for luxury living while re introducing classic architectural features, and completing the rooms with classic contemporary furnishings and interior styling.

We are drawing inspiration from Mayfair’s historic legacy, the country’s rich tradition of craftsmanship, and the client's love for the Art Deco style, to create visually arresting tailored rooms for comfortable contemporary living, with a sense of place true to the prestigious locale.

Bishopscourt, South Africa

Located in the prestigious Bishopscourt, Cape Town, HZI are working alongside Scott & Partners on a new build contemporary three-storey, five-bedroom family home.

The property will be built within an established indigenous garden, with a slight brutalist architectural intervention. The interior will include numerous indoor and outdoor reception/entertainment areas filled with pieces made exclusively by local manufacturers and crafts people. The combination of brutal architectural elements, softened with natural textures, colours and shapes will be key in creating a contemporary living space with a modernist feel.

Greyton, South Africa

Set in the picturesque, rural Greyton, South Africa, this historical early 19th c. house requires restoration, interior design, and landscaping of the extensive plot.


Our constant search for a “twist on the typical” will be key in our approach to the redesign of the main deck - including the formal reception room, dining room and study area - of a private yacht. Design elements include wall panelling, ceiling design, joinery, furniture, soft furnishings and lighting fixtures. Our approach: a freshly tailored contemporary take on Deco-style. Sandblasted glasswork with verre eglomisé and tooled leather panels will add a sense of classical contemporary luxury in HZI’s contribution to the overall design.
