This quirky, eclectic-industrial home was featured in House and Leisure Magazine a few years ago. Back then, it was probably a little bit ahead of it’s time – now Industrial Style (not to mention Eclecticism) has become a powerful global trend. Located on a small holding on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth, the house is owned by sculptor Wehrner Lemmer and his wife, Annette. The house interior boast with a bold and interesting mix of industrial, mid-century modern and other vintage elements along with a striking use of colour – the couples personal style and interests are evident through out the interior and décor.
“A study of contrasts, it is, essentially, two quite distinctive and complete units, designed by different architects – Adrian Beyleveld of Hix Architects, and then later Quinsley Sale of Kiü Architects. One is all raw concrete, exposed brick and gleaming glass, from floor to clerestory windows; the other, quite literally, a balau-clad box. ‘We love concrete, glass and wood,’ says Annette. ‘But the most important element was for it to blend in with the natural surroundings,’ adds Wehrner.” – House and LeisureHouse and Leisure

One thought on “Quirky Eclectic Industrial Home”
Thanks for posting this Marica. As you know, I do the Eclectic Style – it has always come naturally to me. Having said that, this is one of The most Eclectic interiors spaces I have seen. It includes an element from a few styles. Not too sure I would have included some of the elements, but that is the beauty of Eclectic. I love that it is completely and utter authentic and from the heart. That is what makes this space so special really. They have not allowed themselves to be dictated to by any particular style. Pretty inclusive couple I would say.
