Out of Africa
Johannesburg, South Africa
On the outskirts of Johannesburg, two similar adjacent constructions emerge on the South African savannah and form a modern style farmhouse, home to two doctors and their five children.
'The kitchen is not just a practical aspect of our home. It’s a piece of classic furniture that beautifies our space and sparks much joy.'
As a big family they love spending time in the spacious kitchen and living area where the openness of these combined rooms gives it a permanent holiday vibe.The Vipp kitchen features a double oven and fridge unit and two Vipp bins for waste separation.
Cabinet of curiosities
The home displays an eclectic mix of Scandinavian and Italian furniture with a touch of orientalism here hidden inside the Vipp cabinet.
Originally from South Africa, the couple moved to Johannesburg in 2005 after meeting each other in London. In 2015, the couple purchased an empty piece of farm land of 5,000 m2 and built their own dream home. Their Indian roots is visible with oriental objects scattered throughout the home.
