Working on a Sunday

Now this is the type of office I would be more than happy to work in. Especially when it has an equally fabulous coffee shop below it. Welcome to The Haas Collective in Cape Town South Africa. Haas (the Afrikaans word for "rabbit") was born from the wild ideas, passions and endless conversations of creative minds, Glenn Venter, Francois Irvine and Tess Berlein (and in 2012 Francois De Villiers joined). Their dream was to create a hub and an inspiring space where things of beauty could be featured in all shapes and sizes. But more than that, they wanted to give talented individuals a platform to showcase their work. However, what started out as a home of edgy collectables and one-of-a-kind, quirky art pieces (Haas Design) quickly leaped to Haus Coffee, as the demand for enjoying a cup of coffee, while savouring the beauty and energy of this unusual hub, grew. It didn't stop there though...It also naturally developed into Haas Advertising. Located in a heritage building, it took none months of gutting, unearthing original details and renovating to create this dreamy environment. Via Visi (details of the downstairs coffee shop here, details of the upstairs office here).

I love you

I do. I love you David Ross. Everything you photograph makes my heart sing.


Cove 6

Perched on the cliff edges in Knysna, South Africa is a home of stone and timber. Tactile, rugged yet luxurious, perfectly oriented to the views and oh the views.  Magnificent site matched by magnificent home. Cove 6 by SAOTA - Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.

White on white

Clinton and Diana Grobler of Cape Town, South Africa architecture firm Grobler Architects did quite a number on the cottage. Unfortunately there are no before photos on their website but WOW after some renovating and additions this house is gorgeous! All of the white makes it so calm and fresh. And I really love the kitchen - very cool idea to make everything on the back wall black and the island all white.

David Ross encore

This post took me ages to complete, as I could not stop going over and over these photos. Such unfussy yet perfectly arranged spaces, beautifully captured by South African photographer David Ross (check out a previous post of his work here).
