Peter Mrkusic's home

Modern home meets antique interior

This award winning design home is the perfect showcase for the antique and vintage interior collection.

This style of architecture became known as “Transvaal Modernism”. Not so much a self-contained house in the middle of a site but a balanced collection of carefully-considered, solid, geometric blocks. It is minimalist yet sculptural and after Paul Mrkusic and his partner, Stefan, first saw it, they only had eyes for one property.

Vintage meets modern in this home

As head of the SA Antique, Art & Design Association, Paul's influence is clear. Even if your means are relatively modest, a good eye can trump a big budget. On a sloping site, stepped floor surfaces and corresponding ceiling heights define the various spaces. With the original finishes having a retro quality, there was no need to “update” the interior design but Paul certainly reinterpreted the spaces.

Bedroom luxury

As a child growing up in Joburg, Paul was fascinated by cities, the buildings within them and how, over time the design of each element informed the next. He goes to sleep and wakes up each day in his dream environment. Paul and his partner Stefan met at university and as well as their outlook on the world, their shared love of design is a major reason for the eighteen year success of their relationship. It’s a lesson in life, love, architecture and more.
