Architecture & Interior Studio
Verhaal is an architecture and interior studio founded in Sydney, Australia in 2016 by Neydine Bak and Dewald Struwig and now based in Dubai, UAE.
Bak and Struwig work together with a talented team of creatives and a global community of makers to create extraordinary hospitality, hotel and residential experiences defined through art, storytelling and collaboration in the UAE and internationally.
Balanced perfection is the Verhaal standard delivering impeccable, tailored service from concept to completion for our clients. Obsessed with texture, pattern and colour Verhaal is synonymous with playful expressions and artisanal and artistic embellishment – a Verhaal space tells a story, beautifully. Sustainability informs the designers’ approach and is a focus for their solutions-driven studio. Working with small creative studios allows Verhaal to give back to communities and to provide them with a global platform to showcase their work.
Huis was created in 2021 and is an expression of the Verhaal philosophy –a collection of beautiful objects curated by Neydine and Dewald sharing the stories of their travels.
