Spotlight: Out of Africa with Nancy Designs

Nancy Hartman, founder of Nancy Designs, grew up in Paris, France and moved down to South Africa during her teenage years. Hartman found her passion through buying homes, renovating and then selling them. Her eye for creativity was seen by many, as in her later years, Hartman’s friends and family encouraged her to set up her business in 2012. 

Since then, she has grown her business purely through word of mouth and has in recent years partnered with Symbol Projects, operating in Johannesburg, South Africa. Sephus Le Roux, owner of Symbol Projects, is a builder with a great eye for design, which is the reason for their collaborative partnership.

Furthermore, Hartman specializes in residential projects, is passionate about lodge design and consistently works to expand her portfolio in her area.
