the great outdoors

This month’s issue, with its focus on outdoor living, brought back one of my earliest memories – waiting on the veranda of my grandparents’ house for my parents to bring my new baby brother home from the hospital. A lovely place to wait, it had decorative railings and fretwork, and polished red floors. Built in the 1880s, it wrapped around the house, catching the breeze and had space for at least a dozen to sit comfortably. They really knew how to design a veranda in those days. In contrast, my parents’ much more modern house sported a narrow porch barely wide enough for two deck chairs. While it was positioned to make the most of the magnificent view to the sea, it faced east. This meant you couldn’t sit there in…

Sitting low on the landscape and set among established trees, this modern farmhouse in Monaghan Farm, north of Jo’burg, exists in harmony with its natural surroundings. Having found a well-treed stand, the owners insisted that the house was built without removing them. “Fortunately, we only had to remove one tree,” says Nadine Naidoo, who designed the house around them. The decision to work with the trees rather than against them wasn’t just an aesthetic one: with a no-boundary-wall rule in the estate, the extensive foliage provides much-needed privacy. The owners chose Monaghan Farm for its eco-friendly ethos, and the house includes features such as rainwater-harvesting tanks and heat pumps for hot water. It is also well insulated for optimum energy efficiency. As the house faces north-east, Nadine designed a sloping roof…

vivid translucence

When did you realise you wanted to pursue a career as an artist? I worked and travelled overseas for a year after high school and spent much of that time chasing art in whichever city I found myself. It became increasingly clear where my happy place was. I completed my BAFA at Michaelis School of Fine Art (UCT) in 2013. What inspires you? I try to remain close to my senses while I work. I’m inspired by memory, imagination and visual stimuli. The relationship of humans to the natural world underlies much of my work. Thanks to my mother who encouraged me, art gave me a means to steer my imagination from an early age. Which mediums and techniques do you use? I work in thinned-down oils on canvas and sized paper.…
