Rudolph Jordaan leads his group at Apax Design Pty (Ltd). Some of his accolades include a curation chosen by Lidewij Edelkoort for Woolworths at the 2013 Design Indaba, 2013 Shift Fresh Talent winner for the Swedish Institute, Season 3 winner for Win A Home on SABC3.

With its procured team of professionals, Apax Design delivers a service that assesses the needs and wants of the client and interprets that within a given budget. The Pax’s support structure consists of three role players: Client, Designer & Environment. Together they ensure the successful shaping of spaces that will enhance the quality of life for their clients.

Rudolph’s ongoing passion for design education has resulted in uniquely designed short courses developed by Apax Design for students, young professionals or those needing help to design their own environments.


I hired Apax Design primarily as I had heard that Rudolph the owner was very talented and a very firm grasp on value and delivering great designs. They developed great designs for the interior refurbishment of my home in De Waterkant. Their designs showed an unmatched ability to discern what a client wants. Throughout the project Rudolph remained vigilant and empathetic as we worked with contractors that often needed guidance in order to deliver on Apax Design visions. My home is complete and totally beautiful and I believe that is wholly through Rudolph's dedication to great designs delivered with a careful eye on budget. Well done.

We wanted a house that captured the essence of who we are as a family. A perfect getaway destination to forget about the stresses of work and escape the time and space of reality. Rudolph took this vision and completely exceeded our expectations. Their professionalism and fine eye for exquisite detail made every step of the design journey exciting. Without Apax we would not have been able to create a space that encompassed every family members' personality and individual tastes. Thank you Apax for creating our dream home!

As my jet lag subsides, I am beginning to process the incredible work that you have done. You took my mandate and you delivered beyond expectations. I realize that unanticipated building constraints added to the challenge, but it’s clear you more than overcame them and have created a wonderful living space for me. I’m also especially impressed with how you used my inventory of furniture and art in the house. While some of these pieces are nearly 20 years old, you have completely refreshed and modernized them to fit perfectly into the home–a real achievement of the mandate. I know what you have done took days and days of careful preparation, design, and persistence. Your efforts have certainly paid off and I am extremely appreciative!
