Text by the Architects: Relocation of a young family to the owner’s childhood community prompted our client to build a new house on a partially platformed site in Westville, Durban RSA, South Africa. A substantial piece of land was procured with view to developing additional houses in the long term, offering extraordinary views of the Palmiet Nature Reserve and the opportunity for their children to walk to the local school. A productive engagement of the couple yielded an interesting brief accommodating a house, guest studio and ancillary accommodation.
With many options for siting the house, a crucial driver was to ensure that the remarkable location was fully embraced. The building consequently positioned on an existing platform on the southern edge providing the best prospect; unfettered views and becoming an extension of the adjacent nature reserve complete with indigenous wildlife. Simple planning and a two level arrangement with sleeping spaces above and living spaces below were early decisions; delivering an anchor to which the ancillary accommodation appended. All living spaces are open, connecting to northern outdoor terraces, east facing elevated deck, pool and generous lawns.
