The Bakwena House a modern home located in Johanesburg, that boasts clean lines and feature striking interior finishes. The brief was to creates a modern home that has minimalist undertones with color from the rugs and furniture contrasting these minimalistic tones. Natural lighting was encouraged through large floor to ceiling windows. A key feature of this modern designed home is the way the outdoor space is both connected and integrated to indoor spaces. The indoor spaces open up entirely making the outdoor entertaining areas part of the home. The overall look and feel is one of spaciousness that invites nature into the home.

We listen intently to the client’s likes, dislikes and dreams for their new space. It is our task to assess, interpret and analyze every detail and return with amazing original ideas that not only maximize on the brief but exceed it.
With the aim to create a harmonious lifestyle ensuring an overall harmony of your life. For us, real success is the moment when a client is presented with a design solution and says, “We did it.”
The brief was to renovate an existing house and create a calm, secure and easily managed home, which would provide a comfortable lifestyle for the family when they are in the country. High quality workmanship and low maintenance were priorities and the aim was to remodel the property so that it would not require constant maintenance or structural changes for the next ten years. Taugadi house was built over 20 years ago, with ornate features such as arches. Although we appreciated many aspects of the original house, there were some aspects that our clients asked that we resolve. One request was for the house to be a modern contemporary home that boasts clean lines, it needed to feel “grounded” in order to induce the warm, earthy feel it surrounds. Its landscape should take reference from Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens and Cradle of Humankind which are within close proximity. The house was a three bedroom with three bathrooms and a powder room. The clients felt there wasn’t enough bedrooms and bathrooms for the entire family so we, changed the master bedroom to being the oldest daughters bedroom and added an in suite to her bedroom. We changed the entire pitched roof to a slab roof and utilized, the space above the garage to create a grand master bedroom, in suite and a walk in closet with a sky light. To create the required warm and tranquil feel of all the bedrooms and pajama lounge wooden engineered flooring have been installed . The area that previously had a tools shed we have created a cozy guest bedroom with an in suite.

We believe that interior design should be personal. We design spaces that reflect the client’s personality and brand. Our vision is to design spaces that express the interrelationships between architectural spaces, and its inhabits as a result we take special consideration of function, form, sustainable materials and textures.
While working on each project, our philosophy applies a personal formula that combines three sources of inspiration: the client’s personality, the location and lastly, its surroundings. By combining these three variables, each “project equation” yields a unique, ultra – personalized and coherent result.
