To the outsider it’s a mere 1940s historic structure, but inside is where the magic lives, in five storeys of private art studios.
August House gives artists a unique creative hub. With its high columns, authentic architecture and large open plan floors, it’s a wonderful blend of inspiration and stillness. Once a lighthouse factory, August House celebrates 11 years as a well-established, local and international contemporary African artists’ community, within walking distance from the Maboneng, Arts on Main district.
A Space that fuels creativity, ignites minds, and provides inspiration through incubation and collaboration.
August House is the epicentre where proud African talent meets international convention and interest.
August House is a composite of David Mayers’ two great passions – art and property. Having fallen in love with the building in 2014, David formed Quorum Property Group and commenced the renovation of this iconic building. David is not an artist, but August House has allowed him to carve his own niche in the art world, giving him his own personal front row seat to watch both new and established artists from around the continent grow and excel.
