A multi-functional space constructed of concrete, steel and glass in a half hectare field of indigenous veldt. Dry packed dolomite walls create axis, entrances and private court yards.
Large roof overhangs designed around a Celtis Africanus as core and facing due north, allows for deep sun during winter and a shaded environment during summer. This aspect negates the use of an artificially controlled environment. The low slanted roof has an industrial origin with opening sections at the higher zone allowing for control of the internal environment.
The northern façade is entirely transparent allowing for unobstructed light and views. The southern façade makes use of high level windows which provides privacy from neighbouring properties and allows view of the Highveld sky.
Space planning addresses a multi-functional environment with two offices, a living area, industrial kitchen and six bedrooms. The space is used for living, work and entertainment and is occasionally leased for functions and photo and movie shoots.
Zoning of the property is flexible and allows for the dynamic nature of the inhabitants. The space can be converted to a guest house/conference facility, offices, function hall or two separate residential dwellings depending on the ongoing changing nature of current mobile lifestyle.
Finishes are basic and elemental. Off shutter concrete walls, structural steel roof with industrial sheet metal roof cladding and insulation that doubles as ceiling. Floors are standard cement screeds with epoxy paint.
Sanitary fittings, ironmongery and lighting are standard industrial off the shelf. No or little maintenance is required.
Space, light and view take preference.
Viewing of this prestigious home is by appointment only.
