Mod­ern Sim­plic­ity

Condé Nast House & Garden - - SMART SPACES -

‘The stair­case was part of the orig­i­nal de­sign of the house be­fore I ren­o­vated it,’ says Ju­lian Treger of this fea­ture at his farm­house in Plet­ten­berg Bay. ‘It’s clearly in­spired by clas­sic mod­ernist build­ings such as the

Villa hyere in the south of France. It’s a beau­ti­ful, sim­ple de­tail, but it’s prac­ti­cal, too, in that it pro­vides ac­cess to the roof. De­spite health and safety con­cerns – it has no balustrade and a steep pitch – my kids love us­ing it to look down on all of us in the court­yard,’ he says.
