The 13 part series follows the journey of three competing design contestant pairs as they convert three identical white-box penthouse apartments into designer homes.
Win a Home 2018 will be a stand-alone show broadcasting live every Thursday evening at 19:30 on SABC 3, from the 20th of September. At the end of the series one lucky viewer will walk away with a brand-new designer decorated apartment at Balwin Properties’ Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate in Somerset West valued at more than R3 million. This is the biggest prize on South African television.
Over 13 weeks, three competing Design Duos will compete as they transform three white-box penthouse apartments into dream homes in a bid to claim the title as South Africa’s best emerging interior designers.
The Design Duos will have world-class products available at their disposal to create amazing apartments, like cutting-edge appliances from Samsung, furniture and homeware from Weylandts, smart paint by Duram, original Oggie Hardwood Flooring and signature quartz surfaces from Caesarstone.
With a focus on developing local up-and-coming talent through collaborations with the Design Duos, Win a Home Season 5 promises to be the biggest and most rewarding edition of the series yet, giving South Africa’s next generation of creatives the opportunity to show off their skills.
The Design Duos will battle it out for two prizes. The first will be the Judges Choice Prize. A panel of expert judges will decide on a winning design duo who will receive a R100 000 cash prize. In addition, viewers will be able to have their say, and vote online for their favourite Design Duo and favourite apartment. The team with the most accumulated votes at the end of the competition will win R20 000.
By voting for their favourite Design Duo, viewers stand a chance to win amazing weekly prizes live on air, such smartphones and appliances, local getaways and shopping sprees. And by entering the weekly giveaway, viewers automatically stand a chance to win the Grand Prize, a three bedroom penthouse apartment at Balwin’s Paardevlei Lifestyle Estate in Somerset West, Cape Town, worth over R3 million.
This year, one of the Design Duos will need to follow a design brief as set out by SA Home Owner’s Editor, Kelebogile Nondzaba. You’ll be able to see the completed apartment on the show as well is in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
The new season of Win a Home broadcasts Thursday nights at 19h30 on SABC3 from the 20th of September 2018.
