The brief from the client required the design of a home for a family of four in a bushveld estate. The site is a bushveld plot of 1 hectare, and is situated in the Roodeplaat Dam catchment area and required a sensitive approach to the siting of the building. The building is carefully placed as pavilions between the existing thorn trees. The four pavilions for living, sleeping, services and guests are linked to form a combined living unit. Pavilions form courtyards for living in the bush between them.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe house consists of three conceptual elements: The roof and ceiling emulates the horizontal plane of the acacia thorn trees providing shade for its inhabitants. Secondly The 2 “anthill like” fireplaces are beacons in the landscape, and thirdly the jagged edge stonewall elements emulates the klip kopje of the landscapes.Save this picture!© DOOKThe roof height is kept to the minimum to create homely spaces as well as to ensure a low visual impact on the natural environment. The basic structure is of the building is a steel shed with infill timber windows and masonry walls under the shed.
