New houses include the modern 2 bedroom cottage with top floor glass pavilion. The design was customized for a filmmaker requiring an uninterrupted space for film work and movable kitchen unit.
Currently under construction.
Named move house , the design was realized using the lightest possible steel structure and columns with floor to ceiling windows. Security and ventilation was achieved with internal plywood shutters allowing for ventilation in the summer . The large glazing panels can open completely allowing a floating soaring feeling from the top floor . The top floor uses an all steel and glass construction.
A private courtyard provides views and sunlight to main bedroom . The extended cantilever top floor creates a feeling of floating above the city with its uninterrupted views.
The house next to this project is also remodeled with a complete interior make over and a new attached steel and glass living area opening up onto a zen courtyard with floating decks areas to exploit a full panoramic view of table mountain in cape town.
Both houses belong to the same owners.
Light weight contemporary construction techniques ensure a quick completion time for these two projects.
