Spotted on homedsgn.com, the 6th 1448 Houghton Residence is located in Houghton, a wealthy suburb of Johannesburg in South Africa. Architects from SAOTA explain: “The brief was to create a home for an extended Johannesburg family. Situated in Houghton on a gentle slope, the site is surrounded by trees and has views from the upper levels. The site was split into two separate sites organised around a common entrance and driveway providing access to both houses. The houses have a U-shaped configuration organised around an internal courtyard and allows access to all of the living spaces and the swimming pool. A perforated wall separates the public forecourt from the private spaces.” Enjoy the gallery below!
The living spaces, kitchen and private garden are to the north, while the games room, pool and gym are to the west. All of these spaces connect to the courtyard which in turn connects back to the main house and its living spaces.
Antoni Associates were appointed to create a contemporary interior which needed to reflect their family lifestyle. The décor and furniture selected are modern and have strong lines to complement the linear architecture.

Neutral palettes with accent colours have been used throughout. Strong graphic rugs add drama and texture to the rooms which offset against the solid architectural surfaces.
