Come visit her in the studio or drop a mail to start the conversation.

Creative Construction

Growing up on a building site, Sasha learned the fundamental principles of construction. With her sculptural knowledge and natural feel for space and enhanced possibilities, she began creating bespoke venues and spaces for her personal development projects as well as contract work. 

Sasha applied her specialist knowledge in cementitious construction and finish to all of her projects. Here the implementation of Architectural sculpture as an integral part of the overall design created intrigue and masterful integration of the various design elements.

Social  Sculpture Projects

Sasha worked on numerous specialized social projects with intentions to uplift the victims of circumstance through creative and practical applications. Here the challenges lay in understanding context through intensive field work, observing and defining priorities in need of intervention and implementation of solutions. She worked among the people in the various situations, got a good ‘feel’ from grassroots level in a comprehensive and integrated way. Collaborative design of intervention was key to achieving the ‘buy in’. She developed mentor systems at implementation and maintenance stages, speeding up the gentrification process and giving control to those who put the work in.

Fieldwork, intervention and upliftment in impoverished areas around the country gave Sasha a solid perspective on the ways in which collective, creative consciousness can shed light on dismal situations.

Cultural Institutions and Entertainment venues

CARFAX

She found an old building in Newtown which had the ‘bones’ for a unique and comprehensive creative hub – she called it her little Bauhaus in Jozie. She started by spending her days shoveling debris from years of squatting and abuse of the Industrial building to be the proud co-owner of the infamous CARFAX (venues and workstation). She created a platform for the ARTS where the ‘dragons heartbeat’ can be felt throughout the space spanning 4000M2. She specialized in seeing raw talent and developing these strengths. Almost every major Artist from South Africa either hailed from the Carfax workstation or graced the stages and galleries at some point in their careers. 

Tokyo Star

A destination in the suburbs for the fun and fabulous. Tokyo Star was space where progressive trend setters could showcase their work, snack on gorgeous Asian Contemporary cuisine and knock back tequila in step to white label sounds in a wonderland of custom made and quirky interiors. Tokyo Star was among the top 100 restaurants in the country for most years it was open.
