As special award, not only because it is in Coetzee Steyn's country of birth, South Africa, but also because it is the first time the Bosjes Project has been awarded as a whole, which includes Bosjes Kombuis, The Restauration of the Manor House (TV3) and The Skuur (shed/barn) Guesthouse (TV3). From left to right is Coetzee Steyn (Steyn Studio), Quentin Stemmet (Bosjes) and Edwin Swanepoel (TV3).

Towards the end of last year we participated in two open competitions; the one for a small pavilion set in the Museum Gardens of the Childhood Museum in London; the other a high profile competition for a Guggenheim in Helsinki. The latter had almost 2000 entrants, the highest number of entrants thats ever been received for a competition of this nature. We believed we had a good scheme, but the odds were partly against us, as well as some other really good schemes of course. The 6 finalists chosen can be viewed on http://designguggenheimhelsinki.org/finalists.
Winners to be announced June 2015.
Very happy of course!!!
We are one of the 3 finalists in the category 'Ultimate Luxury Kitchen Design of the Year' at the UK Designer KB Awards. Winners will be announced at a gala event in November. Very excited!!
