Green Way Interiors is an environmentally conscious manufacturing studio with a creative approach to industrial design, interiors and architecture.
We offer professional design, fabrication and installation. Simply put, we make things and transform peopleʼs dream interior visions into reality. And if people need help and advice with their vision, we provide that too. From fitted kitchens and cupboards to bespoke furniture and wine cellars, flat pack furniture to designer lamps.
We provide the full monty, from site evaluation and design through to material sourcing, manufacturing, delivery and installation. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and providing original, innovative solutions that answer the specific needs of each client. Quality service is a keystone of our success – if need be, we will return to a site several times until the client is completely satisfied with the end results. In a nutshell, if our clients are happy, weʼre happy.
Peter (the bearded one) is a creative hands-on architect-craftsman hybrid who can only be described as a passionate maker and inventor. Some people work to live, others live their work and passion. Peter is the latter. He lies awake at night dreaming up new and better ways to do things (true story). He loves to experiment with new materials and is extremely passionate about sustainability. Peter is responsible for the technical aspects of implementation and overseeing the design team. He holds a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Cape Town.
Gerhard (the hairless one) is a practical and diplomatic organiser who has the ability to create calm and order in the midst of chaos. An enthusiastic environmentalist, he is driven by his dream of a truly sustainable world. No stranger to hands-on work, he spent three years working and qualifying as a fitter and cabinet maker in the United Kingdom. After returning to South Africa he started his own business as a sole proprietor, before joining forces with Peter to start Green Way Interiors in 2007. Gerhard makes things happen by managing the manufacturing side of the business.
Green is more than just a word for us. We are passionate about sustainability. We buy from suppliers who source their timber from sustainably managed forests. We also get timber from demolition yards or building sites under renovation. Besides for the green factor in reclaimed timber, thereʼs also the undeniable benefit of its unique aesthetic character. We adopt a no waste policy, using materials and resources as efficiently as possible by applying our experience of spatial planning and ensuring good communication between contractors. All of our timber off-cuts go to people who can use it for firewood or building and fixing their homes.
Weʼre huge on recycling and have bins for metal, plastics, paper, glass, organic material, and electrical components. We even bring waste from home to get recycled and ask our staff to do the same, because we want each and every member of our team to live our environmentally conscious ethos. Since we started, itʼs been our vision to keep reinvesting in the business to create a completely sustainable operation. Some of the aspects required for this sort of set up, such as drawing water and power from the elements, are unfortunately not currently possible due to spatial constraints and the fact that we do not yet own our own property. So, for now, we do everything we can to live our vision and work towards our green dream.
