We have intentionally never developed a stylistic formula for our work, which is why our projects never quite look or feel the same. Each of our spaces is the result of our ability to listen, which has turned our designs and
buildings into personal reflections of our clients’ personalities and values, which we co-construct through research, workshops and surveys.
In our studio, every project is an open ended enquiry, helping people to challenge their existing state and work towards an alternative, desired one. We provide guidance, expertise and experience across all phases in the
architectural process, ranging from thinking, to designing, building, and ultimately finding the right way to communicate the results.
The Loxion Kulca brand, which initially began as an informal enterprise of hand-made items, has grown into a corporation that reaches the entire country as well as neighbouring states. The brand was born in Johannesburg and since its entry into the market, has been the embodiment of popular culture. It draws its inspiration from authentic African principles of ‘ubuntu’, which govern the nature of their corporate partnerships.
The brand Loxion Kulca was a representation of the cultures that these designers were exposed to. Nzimande and Mogale had started out by selling handmade t-shirts and caps from the boot of their car. They then approached Sales House, known today as Jet Stores, part of the Edgars Consolidated Stores (EDCON).
Fashion director and Kaya FM DJ Mzwandile “Wandi” Nzimande has died at the age of 44. EWN reports that Nzimande passed away on Wednesday morning at the Olivedale Clinic in Johannesburg after contracting Covid-19. Nzimande is famed for co-founding Loxion Kulca, one of SA’s most sought-after streetwear brands, together with Sechaba Mogale in 1999.
We worked with Quarty Studio for approximately 2 years on the complete overhaul of our house. This included the design of the project, and the execution of the work. Quarty provided excellent design ideas but were also indispensable in managing the practical side of the build.
