This design includes generous outdoor living areas capturing fantastic views over Steyn City towards the Joburg mountains. Slender canopies and delicate screens enliven bold facades and help to animate indoor/outdoor thresholds. An elegant palette defines both the interior and exterior architecture.
Nestled in residential Joburg, this family home capitalises on spectacular views. The architecture draws strength from the concrete finish used to create monumental forms which contrast to the slate roof.
Situated on a steep site against a mountain reserve, this house is stacked vertically with the living & pool level situated on the uppermost double volume level. The lounge floats over the pool with a feature glass floor. Bedroom and entertainment spaces are arranged on the levels below.
This residence is perched upon a steep site high above Joburg. Designed in a new development
This house features double volume open-plan living spaces that extend onto an expansive covered terrace with a large infinity pool. The western façade is clad in undulating vertical fins to reduce the solar heat gain, while allowing uninterrupted views
Situated in Johannesburg, this site has no predominant views, therefore it was important to create focal points and experiential moments within the architecture itself.
This was achieved via the use of strong axial water features, double volumes, a suspended bridge, central courtyard and a dramatic cantilevering living space.
Situated on a steep site overlooking Johannesburg, this house maximizes its views with a large cantilevering pool that is surrounded by living areas. Bedrooms are located on the upper level, with an additional pool and entertainment areas located on the roof catering city lifestyle.
This villa juxtaposes heavy mass walls that ground the project with highly transparent glazed facades, which open the living spaces to the endless views of the surrounding mountains. The large living spaces provide intimacy by using a palette of warm, tactile natural materials, many sourced from the region.
Situated in the pine tree lined Golf Estate. The local craftsmanship inspired the design of the screen, the vibrant glazed tiles, and the sandstone building plinth that responds to the cliffs.
The site slopes down towards the golf course – nestled under the tree canopy. The landscaped roof minimises the visual impact, while the lighter building components slide out from under this planted roof. Visitors experience a poetic journey down to the lower entertainment area that celebrates the seamless connection between the interior and exterior.
