ETERNITY APARTMENTS

Challenged to create interest despite a tight budget, Urban Habitat Architecture added artistic flair to this unassuming residential development by playing with painted pop-outs and deep recesses.

“WINDOWS ARE NOT JUST ABOUT OPENINGS, THEY ARE ABOUT FRAMING SPACES”

Urban Habitat Architecture designed the second phase of this exclusive residential development in Rivonia. In keeping with the aesthetics of the first phase, pop-out blocks and recessed brick work not only add interest to the building’s façade, but also elegantly separate each of the fifty-one, phase two units. Although the façade is striking, it is the windows that are most unusual. Inside, the windows on the eastern or western sides form an L-shape, flooding the comfortably-sized rooms with natural light.

 

However, with the addition of phase two’s six storeys, parking became tight. Using the fall of the property advantageously, a semi-basement level was added under the structure to satisfy parking requirements. With sliding doors and unusual windows, these new apartments are light and airy. Upmarket finishes, balconies and lush gardens complete the complex’s chic feel.
