This terrace home in Loader Street is situated in the heart of the trendy neighbourhood of De Waterkant.

Our client was looking for a full home renovation. Being incredibly busy running numerous businesses, they needed a company that offered a full turnkey solution. We completed a full renovation – from the overall painting of the entire exterior of the house in a beautiful green to the smallest detail, such as fitting doorstops.

The starting point for the look and feel was a modern twist on a classic design, ensuring the prevalent architecture in the neighbourhood was respected and valued. We carefully selected a classic paint palette so our clients would easily feel at home.

We made several changes to some of the existing walls. For the flow of the space to work better, we widened the entrance to the kitchen and moved the position of the master bedroom door.

For the interior design and decorating we worked closely with our client. Made from carefully selected leather, the dining chairs and table are from Louw Roets.

We installed interior decorating curtains from Melissa Kerkhoff in the bedrooms and living area, as well as the custom headboard in the ground floor bedroom.

All existing security bars were removed and replaced with white modern security shutters from Taylor Blinds. The staircase railing and balustrade as well as the security gate we had made up in a custom design.

With both us and the client sharing a passion for luxurious and well-made fittings, we paid particular attention to the light fittings. Most of the chandeliers are from Eichholtz and the bathroom-rated wall fittings are from Astro.

In terms of flooring, we stripped all the existing interior and exterior tiling. The large front veranda, balcony and courtyard were retiled with a modern twist on classic black and white tiles. Using large modern charcoal and lighter grey tiles, we custom cut them into smaller sizes and laid them in a diamond pattern. The front entrance was given additional importance with the use of sage green and cream Victorian-style tiles from Winckelmans. Drawing guests into the hallway from the outside entrance steps, the tiles were laid in a traditional design.
