Set in the Mpumalanga lowlands in Dullstroom, this house needed to conform with the estate’s expectations. For this reason, a modern barn-style interpretation was used. The aim was to capture the stunning views over the mountains and trout-filled lakes. The house was divided into three sections, each with its own assigned role. The southern-most block comprised garages on the ground level with secondary bedrooms above. The entertaining and living space was a part of the second block and the northern-most block used for the formal lounge and study with the main suite upstairs. The brief called for comfort and functionality. Natural materials, such as face brick lends a warmth and natural element to the house’s modern, geometric form.
