We love this reinterpretation of the Case Study House No.18 up on the Highveld north of Johannesburg. Look forward to seeing plans- it will be interesting to know how the traditional SA "schuur" "H" plan has influenced the layout here. Amazing detailing too - to quote Visi:
"Stripped-down architecture requires meticulous detail and Gavin points to this detail as “moments of sheer genius on behalf of the architect”. There are no skirting boards, carpet trims or even plaster, meaning there was no place to hide and all work had to be perfect"
