House Makda

ERF 1023. Emmarentia. Johannesburg. South Africa.

Client: Ebrahim Makda
Program : ResidentialAdditions & Alterations
Status: Construction – March 2019
Value: R 5 Million (US $300 000)
Area: 475m²

The home “wore” the age of heritage but did not carry related distinguishable heritage features. The projection was that only the existing footprint would be maintained, “rooting” the position of the renovation on the site. Working from the ground up, the extensive reconfiguration was to transform this single storey, unwieldy home, into an accessible, “bright and light” contemporary home.

The architectural reformulation brought a total metamorphosis in form and function. A patio added along the northern facade, blended the inside with the garden beyond, extending and diversifying the living areas potential. Attention to clearly articulated, layered, multi-textured materiality was applied to embolden architectural features and add to the tactile and visible distinguishable character of the renovation. 

Floor to ceiling height was designed high, visually extending the compact spaces and bringing in much needed light into the house.
