A major thanks to Homify and Johannes Van Graan for the article written on our House Viljoen

As the title reads, this home was specifically designed to ooze elegance and frugal sophistication. Our client's brief was to create a home that served as a backdrop and stage to their everyday lives without overpowering them. This was to be done while keeping in vogue with a timeless architectural design philosophy. 

The residential estate's guidelines specified that "Cape Dutch" architectural aesthetics had to be adopted in order to keep with the already fully built estate. This, coupled with the above, meant that a modern interpretation of the style was required while also respecting the original style's colour palette, black and white.

"By responding to the natural context of its site, a house in Joburg’s Meyersdal Eco Estate optimises its energy efficiency while respecting the aesthetics of its surrounds."

The architect: Hugo Hamity
The client: Gary and Teresa Cooper
The client’s brief: A single story open plan house designed to have as little impact on the site as possible featuring lots of wood, glass and a low-maintenance facebrick facade. 
The house: An elevated structure making use of passive design principles and defined by separate living and sleeping spaces connected by glazed corridors.

Ready To Use House Plans

The need for exclusive house plans without paying exorbitant fees

The idea of offering Ready to Use House plans was born out of a need to address our existing and new clients' need for exclusive house plans without paying exorbitant fees.

Some of our existing clients don't mind non-exclusivity in their home designs and they have now offered their house plans back into our website for re-sale. These house designs have taken an average of 3 to 4 months to conceive, conceptualise, plan and detail. These house plans have been meticulously designed and they represent countless hours of detailed and passionate design and documentation.

Now, these house designs are being offered at a marginal amount of their original cost to develop, with the added benefit that they are available immediately for submission to the municipality and building.

But, a new potential and discerning client visiting our website might ask the question, What is the difference between these house plans and other cheaper ones that are commonly found online?

Website Launch

New Venture with the launch of our new Website

I'm excited to announce the launch of our new website and a new and promising venture for potential and existing clients.

In today’s world our clients find themselves in a compromised position where they want to express themselves in their home designs, make designs that are spectacular and make a mark.

However, with construction costs being volatile at the moment - many give up on their dream home designs to bring down cost.

As an Architect with a passion for quality and detail, I knew that we had to find a different solution for clients to still be able to build amazing homes, without compromising on quality, design and finishing.

So, our new venture now offers our potential clients a unique architectural opportunity:
