faerie glen upgrade

alterations and additions to house swanepoel, faerie glen (conceptual only)

The re-design was commissioned by the client, due to the outdated and impractical design, layout and finish of the residence in this popular Pretoria suburb.

Almost an entire new layout and configuration of spaces, flow and function had to be done, to ensure the house would function in line with the resident’s lifestyle and requirements. Firstly, an aesthetically pleasing and welcoming Entrance, creating a and “sense of arrival” to lead you into the property plus a newly designed foyer were designed with a covered winged roof and water feature. Living spaces were redefined and designed to accommodate the client’s informal lifestyle.

The home office and study areas were carefully considered and planned out to function privately, yet still be part of the rest of the house. The new design gives the “out dated” property, a new lease on life and although the project was not seen to fruition, had the client very excited and eager to commence with the large scale alteration.
