Drakes House

Synopsis
‘Our task was more thanset,’ says Ross, who owns graphic design agency Nice Work. ‘We immediately tore out the dusty carpets throughout the flat and restored the original parquet floors to their mahogany best. It instantly felt like a new space.’ Its fusty colour scheme was quickly replaced with a neutral ivory grey on the walls, interspersed with feature walls washed a deep emerald green. The jewel tones echo the surrounding treetops and pick up the pots of greenery dotted around the apartment and balcony, giving the home a surprising sense of peace and tranquillity – so much so that you wouldn’t know it is situated on one of Joburg’s busiest roads.
