Our commercial work gives us a platform to experiment and push the boundaries of engineering to continue to create out unique and groundbreaking designs.

High quality and unique, we like to push the boundaries with structures and design elements, often blurring the division between the interior and exterior, encouraging users of the building to embrace the African climate.


We offer a range of architectural and interior services. Holloway and Davel Architects will only take on clients who are willing to contract the firm team for full project administration of the build. Our projects are expensive entities, and we believe that only with proper management, the client will be satisfied with the end product.
