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.

Visser Architects specified Tranquility, from the Colour Collection, crafted by Dutch artisans Hakwood.

Like many of Hakwood’s creations, the process to create Tranquility is multi-faceted and time consuming:

Premium quality French White Oak is air dried and then kiln dried to exacting standards. Thereafter, it is fumed, profiled and finished with no fewer than two sealants, including oxidative and UV-cured oils.

The result is a hardwood floor finish of character and depth, one that will age gracefully, improving over time.

In “Cape Town 3”, Jane Visser and her colleagues have created a bespoke private residence that eschews passing fads, instead delivering a family home that pays homage to a traditional Cape vernacular but in a thoroughly contemporary way.

As one might expect, the quality and authenticity of materials used is of critical importance and we were so pleased to contribute beautiful hardwood flooring for the major public & private spaces.

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.
