Creating a home that not only represents the unique personalities of each resident, is contemporary in design yet boasts an elegant and sophisticated ambience, requires thorough planning and step-by-step analysis by all involved, in particular the architect.
In order to create a proudly South African home, all aspects of our beautiful country must be considered – from the fertile ground right up to the cerulean sky.

Ideally located in a pristine golf estate, this home is nothing short of breathtaking. The home is designed in such a way that it blends seamlessly with the horizon, embracing its natural surroundings. Modern in design, the architecture ingeniously incorporates earthy elements making particular use of steel, wood and glass.
When the owners of this home engaged in building and designing their ideal dwelling, they envisioned a home of timeless architecture and traditional aesthetics. “The style had to blend into the surrounding neighbourhood (which is traditional) so we took the classical route, using large sash windows and a neutral colour tin roof to give an overall elegance to the house,” explains the owner.
