The contemporary zinc cladding and interior makeover of this Johannesburg home reframes its architectural heritage for the 21st century

When Christo Vermeulen and Nico Venter found their home in the Johannesburg suburb of Parkhurst, it was in a dilapidated state: ceilings destroyed by a leaky boiler and with not much of historical value to preserve. Parkhurst houses were originally built en masse for servicemen returning from the Second World War. Th ey were small brick houses with corrugated-iron roofs and street-facing verandas. While they were humble, they have become much sought-aft er, and give the area its distinctive character. Parkhurst’s walkable main road with its pavement cafés, restaurants and street-facing shopfronts, a rarity in Johannesburg with its mall culture, is probably attributable to the way these old houses, with their verandas, are connected with the street.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
