Coastal Opulence

Hawaan comprises a total of 173 single residential sites of similar size, almost all of which are now completed. This example has been designed in the contemporary style with minimum applied decoration, open-plan living and substantial areas of glass to introduce light and air.

Contrast of Form

On an open piece of land, with a neighbour’s house to the south and two neighbours across the road to the west, architect Louise O Architects crafted this 750-square metre family home on a 1 300-square metre piece of land at the picturesque, secure and enviably equipped Waterfall Country Estate in Midrand.

La Vinya Villa

This new villa is one of a number to be built around the perfected landscape of the PGA Catalunya championship golf course. A prerequisite was that it would be unseen from the course, yet provide pristine, upper echelon residential accommodation with extraordinary internal and external living spaces.

Visionary Platform

This house was a new design in the Waterfall residential development on a stand size of 1 130 square metres, with 42 percent coverage spanning 677 square metres. Although the ‘silo’ is the defining factor of the house, the top lit windows are unique in their angle.

Neolith® goes back to the future

Neolith®, a market leading brand of Sintered Stone, was recently specified for two very special projects as part of the latest UK primetime TV series, ‘George Clarke’s Old House, New Home’, broadcast on Channel 4

California Modern

Forty acres of undeveloped rolling countryside was the site for this modest yet distinctly different build, which from the outset was planned to be visionary but not overwhelming.
