The owners & interior designer selected Loyal, from the Authentic Collection by Dutch artisans, Hakwood, to floor the majority of public and private & spaces.

The Authentic Collection is a modern interpretation of traditional wood tones in French White Oak and this iteration is twice fumed, resulting in rich and deep colour with a mottled appearance that is characteristic of Hakwood’s most popular creations.

The visual effect of wide-board plank flooring juxtaposed with herringbone parquet is world-class and we’re proud to have been associated with yet another prestigious project with Wynand Wilsenach and his team.

Situated in Oranjezicht, this beautiful family home boasts an ideal view of Table Mountain and Cape Town’s city bowl.

A classic architectural design and expressive interiors, with bold use of colour accents, make for a thoroughly bespoke result, one which will stand the test of time.

The interior design team selected RA 001, from the prestigious Reclaimed Antique Oak collection by Dutch artisans, Hakwood, to floor the bedrooms and connecting spaces.

Hakwood’s Reclaimed Antique Oak is hand-crafted using traditional tools and techniques from salvaged structural beams that are certified to be at least 150 years old. The antique timber itself is close to 250 years old.

The visual and tactile effect of the undulating, hand-hewn surfaces, rounded edges, and traditional repairs to splits using antique oak dowels and inserts is breathtaking.

Our clients’ holiday home is set in the extraordinary Leopard Creek Private Game Reserve, overlooking unspoiled bushveld and scenic waterways.

The understated architecture and tactile interior design is suited to the elements, with an abundance of outdoor living and entertaining areas.

Stunning views

The home is located on a steep mountain side with stunning views of the Atlantic seaboard, says Fisher. We capitalized on those views with large glass facades, while strong, shielding walls on both flanks ensure maximum privacy from the adjacent houses.

Being on the Atlantic coast, Cape Town has a very abrasive climate, which is a nightmare for timber and steel. Hakwood is our go-to flooring product because of its stability and its hard-wearing quality.

Sian Fisher and Kim Benatar of Three14 Architects were asked to help a client find his new dream house. Realising the unique opportunities his current location offered, they persuaded him to let them re-design and rebuild the entire house, unlocking the full potential of the site.
