The Walkersons W74 residence is nestled in the lowlands of the Mpumalanga landscape in Dullstroom. The ‘Barn Style’ design approach was favoured as response to the estate guidelines, with a modern architectural interpretation. The clients’ brief of a ‘home away for home’ laid the design emphasis on comfort and functionality. The house floor plan is defined by 3 distinct “Barn” elements, each with its own character. The choice of rustic materials softens the modern geometry of the form, lending warmth to the façade and interior spaces.
