Iqhayiya Design Workshop


Iqhayiya Design Workshop was established in 2006 to primarily conceptualise a Municipal Development Framework for a small town called Flagstaff in the Eastern Cape. Since this period, the practice has evolved into a fully-fledged architectural practice; driven by two young and dynamic architects, Kayalethu Qwalela and Mfundo Maphumulo. Both are passionate about the realisation of architectural excellence and purity.

We are fully HDI owned; IDW is a Level 1 BBBEE contibutor(BBBEE certificate) . The firm is a corporate member with the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA)- Reg no. PI 4669. The members are also registered with the South African Council of the Architectural Profession (SACAP) and also with SAIA as well as regional Institutes.

We have coined the axiom ‘Form follows Site Orientation’ as a measure of affirming our commitment and responsibility towards producing buildings that impact on the planet as minimally as possible.
