The architect and their clients’ selected Sagonne, a genuinely hand-hewn floor finish crafted by renowned artisans, Hakwood, to floor both public and private interior spaces.

Their brief called for an anti-termite treatment to be added to FSC accredited French White Oak, all of which underwent extra conditioning to ensure dimensional stability in an otherwise unforgiving climate.

The visual and tactile effect is world-class, as the flooring offers a backdrop to offset the white river sand and vibrant fine-art installations in a space that we’re proud to have and we’re proud to have been associated with.

Xigera Safari Lodge is deeply rooted in the Okavango Delta and we were privileged to contribute bespoke floor finishes to this extraordinary project.

Resting effortlessly within the wilderness of a World Heritage Site, the Lodge houses a collection of art that is bold in vision and groundbreaking in its scope, the first of its kind on the continent.

Haldane Martin juxtaposed feminine symbolism with a modern aesthetic.

The European oak floor by Hakwood adds natural warmth whilst contributing a graphic herringbone pattern.

The fabric installation hanging from the ceiling is one of the key bespoke features of the interior. The fabric is backlit, creating a glow and a delicate play between light and shadow. One of the most innovative aspects of the project, this creates a lovely graceful effect, softening the space and framing the clothing while drawing the viewer’s gaze towards the garments.

Haldane Martin Iconic Design created a sophisticated and feminine high-concept Retail store for South African fashion label Hip Hop. The unique interior design for Hip Hop is emblematic of the award-winning design studio’s innovation in the commercial and retail design sector.
