The client approached Gottsmann Architects and asked the firm to design a contemporary house with a South African identity. The design had to respond to the local vernacular, the climate and to the future development of prospective neighbouring houses.

The design was to be simple in form with an emphasis on horizontality. The house was to respond to both street facades while creating a generous size private garden protected from the street.

North facing rooms with views to the golf course together with the use of our double glazing allowed well-lit and thermally comfortable.
