Constantia House

Deep in the heart of the Constantia greenbelt lies a family home which can be described as part pastoral homestead, part designer den. A serene balance has been achieved between Andrea Graff’s lively and eccentric style and the proportions of architect Wynand Wilsenach’s clean and contemporary barn-like design.

‘’My approach is completely layered – the house is like a treasure trove of finds. I was fortunate in that these clients know what they like and what they don’t like and we had fun in choosing one-off pieces and designing custom furniture and handmade local items.’’ - Andrea Graff.

Andrea Graff masterfully added layers of texture and furniture that all come together to create a sense of rootedness. She sprinkled a few playful elements through the house, from a bespoke hand-painted chinoiserie-style pattern and lighting that dazzle with striking shapes and surprising scales.

‘’We are reminded to take small pauses in our day, to look at an eagle in the sky or a heron flying past or to notice the changing foliage through the seasons. In a subtle but significant way, we are constantly interacting with nature’’, - Caroline Topat, home owner.
