The bar and members’ club was designed by StudioA, a Joburg-based boutique interior architecture firm. The designers state that art – by South African masters JH Pierneef and Maggie Laubser as well as contemporary works by the likes of Skullboy – was a big driver that influenced design. Pink custom furniture pieces were selected to juxtapose with rust-finish school-style chairs and leather couches.
