HOUSE + STUDIO LOCHSLOU

Alterations and Additions to an existing house of historical significance: an excellent example of the Johannesburg Arts & Crafts style in Kensington, Johannesburg, as well as the addition of a substantial contemporary photographic studio on the site adjoining the main house. All new work on the main house respected the heritage value of the existing. The new photographic studio needed to be as tall a volume internally as possible, and as such was placed on the lowest section of the property and submerged into the ground where the previous swimming pool had being placed. This new studio cannot be seen from the main street, independently accessed by a new vehicular entrance on the lower end of the street boundary.
