Simplicity, Light and a Shed
In the design of this modern farmhouse we used innovative design rational to produce a modest, minimalist residential architecture result. Situated on a hill with mostly southern views, this home was designed to harness northern light whilst making the most of the southern views. As professional architects we have the ability to address challenges in terms of a site in order to harness the best potential. In order to harness the northern light a central courtyard was incorporated that also allowed for privacy. The home is a celebration of inside/outside living connecting the owners with the context. Creating a lifestyle where the spaces allow the owners to think and feel and realise the importance of their unique perception and impact on the environment.
Architect’s design philosophy and materials used
The architectural detailing of the building is seamlessly interpreted in the interior, which allows for a well-balanced design aesthetic. One that both embraces the other, as well as the of natural landscape into a symbiotic relationship. As one of the top architectural firms in South Africa we are intrinsically involved in creating both sustainable homes but also spaces that are designed for the unique needs of our clients.
