This home exudes a warm and inviting ambience that makes guests want to linger. And that is exactly what the home owners wanted of their newly built home in one of Midrand’s upmarket estates. “We wanted a home that was simple and effective in its design, yet with a relaxed and cosy feel,” says the owner.

With this in mind, Etienne Stols of SCS Architects together with Coutts Construction worked on the project. The brief was simple and required a “contemporary home that would be based on modern family living incorporating inviting features, ensuring there was a good interaction between the family’s lifestyle needs and entertaining”, says Stols.
