House 19

This plot of land has an incredible view. On a clear day you can see all the way from Table Mountain to Stellenbosch’s Jonkershoek mountains and Paarl’s de Paarlberg mountain range! The view was therefore a major consideration when it came to the design. The only problem with the location is the fact that the erf is situated on a granite koppie, which means that normal construction methods wouldn’t work in this case!

We suggested using steel construction to create a sound foundational structure, while keeping building costs in check! This solution enabled us to build here, and means this incredible view could be enjoyed by the owners for years to come! The home has also been designed in such a way that a lift can be added in the future, ensuring easy access to all the spaces for the whole family! Check out our video above.
