Project Brief

The brief aligned with the client’s natural instinct for functional spaces, coming from his background as an Industrial engineer working in the Explosive industry. It called for a practical living space which adhered to the highest European standards.

“The Phase Three team did an outstanding job in delivering the high-quality finishes I expected. This was not easy to achieve, however, they worked tirelessly to ensure perfection on all aspects of the build. I would highly recommend Phase Three as a building contractor in Cape Town that will deliver exceptional work with quality finishes.”



The main inspiration for this design was to follow the guiding principal of form following function. A minimalistic look and clean lines all added to the aesthetic. Every aspect of the home was designed to serve a purpose as well as to enhance the visual appeal of the space.


A huge challenge during this project was to ensure that every part of the design was up to customer standards. This level of accuracy was well within our expert team’s capabilities. One of the challenges was the recess skirting that was part of the scope of work. This was also an existing building with old plumbing so the project presented its own challenges that required good planning and accuracy to ensure we delivered the desired result.
