About Us

Living Spaces

At Aevum, we understand that the perfect home is so much more than simply a house. A combination of international inspiration and local expertise means that each of our developments is completed to only the most exacting global standards.

From the initial concept to final finish, each project reflects the singular elegance and striking detail that differentiates us as more than just developers, but as creators of living spaces that inspire and energise. Design and practicality blend together in our homes to create a joyous, effortless living experience.

Aevum’s projects are inspired by our individual journeys and our shared passion for South Africa and the continent. Naibor, a 4000 sqm development of individual homes on 87 Dennis Road in Atholl, set a benchmark for contemporary design when it was released in 2010. 49 Oxford, a 6000 sqm super luxury development of 3 stand-alone homes in Sandhurst was unique. It offered an unparalleled combination of cutting-edge design, sweeping views of the Magaliesberg Range and an address that commanded attention. The development garnered tremendous interest ahead of its release in June 2012.

Hakue is a development of two designer split level villas inspired by the “geographical room of Camps Bay” with the presence of Table Mountain as a backdrop, the vastness of the Ocean and the ever-changing Cape sunlight and was completed in December 2012. 52 Oak is a contemporary globe-trotting family’s dream residence. The home was designed to emphasize open, flexible spaces, allowing the homeowner to tailor the home’s functionality. Modern or “industrial” mixed materials such as concrete, timber, and glass were used extensively throughout the home to provide a neutral and warm backdrop for art and collectibles from all over the world. This project was completed in June 2014.

Launching in 2016 and 2017 respectively are Rosebank  No. 12 and Hyde Park on 6th which consist of exclusive, sleek, and elegant apartments  which cater to modern-day families and on-the-go business execs.

Our design and finishes are our calling card. We have partnered with leading architects on developments – Arthur Quinton (Naibor & Hakue), Cimato Moroldo (49 Oxford), Wilh van der Merwe (52 Oak), GLH & Associates (Rosebank No 12 & Hyde Park on 6th)  – we appoint construction and engineering teams that are at the top of their game.

Aevum is a partnership driven by Shaista Manekia, our Managing Director, an ex-investment banker from Citi who brings an Asian sensibility blended with a modern eye for contemporary design. She has lived in Kenya, Hungary and travels extensively in Asia, Europe and North America to bring the freshest thinking to our projects.

We look forward to sharing our passion for creating joyous spaces with you.
