Ballito House KZN

The client's brief was for a modern one of a kind holiday home in the Salt Rock area of greater Ballito KZN. The property is situated in the rolling hills just inland from the coastline on very narrow stand with quite a steep slope over the length of the property, which posed real design challenges. The advantage of the property not being right on the coastline was that we could introduce steel elements without the risk of rust and as such a substantial amount of steel was introduced in the design. The design concept originated from a rough sketch with a U-shaped central triple volume vertical circulation core leading into Living and Entertainment block on the western side and Bedroom block on the eastern side with these blocks covered by ultra thin roof structures in a wing-like shape from the central core, which really caught the attention of the client.

Loads of natural light was also one of the client's requirements and with the steel elements the north facades and living areas became steel and glass boxes with the wing roof structures also floating on glass to allow the maximum amounts of light to enter the house.
