A South African Contemporary House design for a young family of 4 in an old well established Pretoria Suburb.The home shares the site with an existing residence turned office, restricting the amount of space available on the property. Multiple levels were necessary to accommodate the Client’s comprehensive wish list without sacrificing to much of the site, leaving a fair amount of garden to complement the home and allowing enough space for children and grownups to play. Care was taken during the design process to ensure ample shading in the Summer months, while still allowing sunshine to flow into the home during colder winter months. Materials were selected to accommodate client brief of low to minimum maintenance, yet the house had to have a contemporary/modern feel. The public areas of the home open up onto spacious covered and open outdoor areas where the family can entertain their guests in comfort.
