HOUSE MOOSA

The owners of House Moosa bought the property with the aim of gutting it and creating their dream space. Urban Habitat Build was contracted to consolidate as well as extend the home’s original design.

“A GOOD HOME MUST BE MADE, NOT BOUGHT”

In order to give House Moosa a modern feel, the interior spaces were completely gutted and an open plan design created. With the removal of load-bearing walls, the new open plan structure needed additional underpinning. In a creative engineering twist, Urban Habitat Build added steel beams, cased in brickwork, to the first-floor ceiling to bear the weight of the second storey. These were later painted white and now give the first-floor ceiling an unusual, chic box-look. The property’s entrance was redesigned and a slatted timber screen added above the doorway. Urban Habit Architecture and Build created a modernised, fresh house for House Moosa’s owners.
