Client:
Private Family
Value: Undisclosed
Status: Design Stage

The design proposes a new family home on a challenging cliffside site.

The house is reached from a high level road and is set on an incline of 40 degrees. The brief calls for maximising sweeping views, access to outdoor space and environmental comfort within the changeable Highveld climate.

A series of tiered spaces each open to the roof of the volume below creating terraces with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. A continuous spine stair provides the architectural and physical link from the road above to the stream at the bottom of the garden.
