Location: Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa
A contemporary residence based in The Wilds Estate. The design roots itself on a hill overlooking the eastern part of the city. One of the biggest challenges on this project was to encapsulate the primary views towards the West while trying to orientate the major axis of the house towards the North. This challenge inspired the 'U' shape of the house. The layout made use of the two longer arms of the 'U' shaped plan to enjoy more northern light to enter the house. Deep spaces with overhangs allowed views of Pretoria while still taking advantage of the local climate. We look forward to breaking ground.
