EMLEY and MOERDYKEstablished: 1918
The partnership between F EMLEY and GLP MOERDYK circa 1918. Emley encouraged Moerdyk to undertake his research in the Cape and put forward Moerdyk's name for a bursary which Moerdyk was awarded in order to carry out his research on the architecture of the Cape. They collaborated on the Dutch Reformed church at Bothaville in 1918 and submitted a design for the Benoni Town Hall competition in 1918. Contract documents exist, dated 1923, for Emley & Moerdyk to design a house in Forest Town, Johannesburg which perhaps refer to Moerdyk's own house in Forest Town (cf. GLP MOERDYK).
