Xavier and Carine Huyberechts Residence, Houghton, Johannesburg, South Africa


Xavier Huyberechts, being an architect, designed this wonderful house for his family. Situated in the outskirts of Johannesburg creates a quiet presence for the surroundings. Both Carine and Xavier are expatriates went to South Africa in 1994 but loved it ever since. As far as the house is concerned Carine thoughts were: “The best thing about living where we do is the nature around us; living within these surrounds with a family that is fully active in this environment.” .


Apart from the elegant installation, the interior design of the house is very refined. The main colour is white with visible wooden surfaces on display. The final touches are the paintings and the carpet, binding smoothly the white and the oak colour.
