Glenn was classically trained in Design at Portsmouth College of Art & Design under the mentorship of Raymond Ashley, graduating in 1973. Carol nurtured her passion for Design and abilities in problem solving as an employee of International Design guru Roy Higgs from 1973.




by Glenn & Carol, Partners in Design was formed as a professional Interior Design Consultancy in  Durban. Since then PID have gained an impeccable reputation for delivering creative and well executed Interior Design solutions in the Hospitality & Leisure, Commercial, Retail and high end Residential sectors in Kwa Zulu Natal, Sub Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean. We have also developed working relationships with reliable contractors, suppliers and specialist firms



Notwithstanding the instant electronic advantages that we now enjoy within the industry, we still sketch ideas with a pencil and steadfastly retain our original principles:

  • Listen very carefully to a brief
  • Is a solution spectacularly good or just ‘OK’?
  • Check it, check it and check again (based on the old Master Cabinet Maker’s adage – Measure twice, cut once)
  • Make it happen

Our reputation demands that these values are applied to every project that Partners in Design undertakes which can be expected on time and within budget. Sketch4
