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.
