Metz

Morningside, Sandton 775sqm This family home was completely gutted and only the roof and some of the exterior walls retained. A new steel structure was inserted to support the existing roof. The steel framework was left exposed and allowed to partially rust before giving it a coat of sealant. Conceptually the design centres the home around a new swimming-pool courtyard with concrete monoliths. Off-shutter concrete was used extensively for built-in furniture and sculptural elements. A striking feature of the house is a 13m long, two-legged concrete table.
