About Ms Sadiyah Geyer

Sadiyah Geyer has built up over a decade of industry experience and is highly skilled in executing interior architecture and design projects, focusing on conceptual development, technical documentation, project management, and administration. She has a deep passion for working with people, designing to contribute to the enrichment of society, and creating spaces that provide maximum user comfort and efficiency, with minimal impact on the environment. To share her passion and knowledge of the built environment with aspiring, young interior designers, she joined the University of Johannesburg in the faculty of Art, Design and Architecture as an academic and researcher. Her teaching experience in the past five years has been an energizing and rewarding step in her career. She has recently completed her MA (Design) qualification at the University of Johannesburg. Her research focuses on urban regeneration strategies through the implementation of interior design as a creative industry.
