Narrative is a Johannesburg-based residential property development company which has developed or begun construction on more than R1.3 billion worth of residential properties in Sandton over the past 3 years. They create spaces that don’t just look and talk modern, but they also answer modern problems.
From centrally-located homes that are central to your life, to two-bedroom apartments where bedrooms are equal in size and both en-suite, Narrative’s aim has always been to build living spaces that make perfect sense.
Their properties don’t just work with the demands of a modern lifestyle; they’re built for it. It’s this sensibility that makes the hallmark of a Narrative property an impeccably stylish, light and spacious, perfectly-situated home.
Narrative believes that urbanisation is key to creating employment and growing our economy.
Daffonchio Architects was founded by Enrico Daffonchio, an Italian architect based in Johannesburg South Africa, and active in Africa and Europe.
The firm's work ranges from product design to entire precinct developments; from luxury homes to sustainable housing in Africa's booming cities.
The architectural approach is strongly rooted in Daffonchio's formative years in northern Italy, where classical architecture co-exists with Italian rationalism, and a chemistry of tradition and innovation shapes all aspects of design.
The firm's work is enriched through extensive travelling, a growing need for, and interest in, sustainable design, and collaborations with contemporary artists. More recently, their open-source approach and parametric design are giving a powerful new direction to the firm's work.
