House in Johannesburg - Patio and Landscape

House in Johannesburg
South Africa

Thought as a comfortable respite for the owners, the design for this area is oriented toward family life and entertaining, and uses a simple palette of materials – concrete, wood, limestone and glass- relying on elegant details and craftsmanship to provide the visual counterpoint. This family retreat is accented by elegant furnishings and warm materials. Expansive windows draw nature inside while interior spaces spill out onto the covered patio, uniting indoors and outdoors throughout the seasons. The landscape design revolves around the very ornamental blue and red Jacaranda trees, South Africa’s national tree, while red accents are provided by the Blood grass that stands out against the green and by the aloe vera plants.
