One of the most important requirements when designing our home was that it would look as good from the outside as it does inside,” say Bernard and Sindy Makhanya, who hired Peter Ries Architects.
From the outside, an enormous window allows for a view through the living space. Water features, timber panelling, stone cladding and landscaping by Rolling Stone Landscapes create focal points which make the exterior equally interesting.
The decor, by Red Jade, incorporates colourful pieces, statement light fittings and timber floors which add interest and texture ensuring that the house doesn’t look clinical or cold.
