Approach and style

‘We have an open space and clean lines approach to most of our designs. We feel that people are not made to fit in to a little box and therefore spaces that are interconnected and free flowing are what make our houses lovely comfortable homes,’ explains Meyer. ‘It is important for us to really understand our clients and how they see themselves most comfortable in spaces they want designed. Spaces should only be defined by the furniture and not the walls, therefore we love opening up our designs so that nature can become part of the home in all aspects of day-to-day living. Sustainability is one of our cornerstones when it comes to designing our buildings. We believe we must take care of the planet and every small contribution will add up in the long run,’ he adds.
