The Home on a Hill

Space: Residential

Design Style: Modern 

Location: Johannesburg 

The saying “location, location, location” rings very true with this project. Located on a hill in Bedfordview, this modern creation enjoys one of the best views of the Johannesburg cityscape. Its unique location allowed us to make the house almost become part of the landscape, allowing it to tower out above its surroundings (including neighbouring homes). 

Let’s discover ‘House Sardinia’ high on a hill.

    This unique site allowed us to design a sculptural element on the landscape. Set high up on a hill, the position allowed the house form to become a sort of rock feature protruding from the landscape.

    As one of the most tried-and-tested building materials, wood can always be relied on to flaunt character, pattern, texture, and colour. Notice how it conjures up different looks and vibes for the various furnishings and accessories in the open-plan dining room and kitchen.
