Renovation ideas: ​A Greenside home gets a new look!

Today’s homify 360° is an inspiring gem that is the result of a renovation. The professionals in charge? FORM ADD FUNCTION, an architectural team based in Orchards, Johannesburg. The name of their project? House Van Zyl in Clovelly road, Greenside.

Let’s take a look at the exquisite results of this modern family home post-renovation…

​Exterior socialising

Seeing as our South African weather is exquisite for exterior socialising (most of the time, anyway), it is no surprise to come across a home featuring outdoor spaces meant for get-togethers – and this project is certainly no exception.

This L-shaped patio is ideal for those exterior soirees, and definitely large enough to feature an outdoor seating- and dining area.

The fact that is privy to such a tranquil garden view (which includes a swimming pool) is a bonus!

​A natural touch

Speaking of the garden, we certainly can’t take a peek at this project without seeing what the yard looks like. And from this photo, it is clear that there’s a firm commitment to keeping the exterior spaces clean and neat, not to mention fresh and green!

Before Renovation


Before we glance at the interiors, we take a quick look at what this house looked like before work started to give it a new look. Suffice it to say that the post-remodel style (one of straight modern lines, soft neutral hues and an overall clean/elegant design) scores major points in our books when compared to this pre-renovation photo!

​The bedroom

Speaking of neutral hues, the same colour palette is carried through to the main bedroom, ensuring a soft and tranquil look—what else would one expect from a space reserved for resting?

But let’s not forget to give credit to the buckets of natural light filtering inside via the generous windows!

​The bathroom

The modern style is treated to a slight touch of rustic design for the bathroom, with wood, tile and concrete becoming the main stars of this space. And any bathroom with a free-standing tub (as can be noticed in the left corner) definitely gets our vote of approval.

We love it, but would much rather hear what you think of this home’s new look.
