A beautifully complex brief for a private home wishing to fullfil multiple scenarios. Set in the wonderful landscape of the east coast of South Africa, with views of the mountains and close to a river, the sloping site was a brilliant starting point. Simple use of materials, and a stepping floor plan that slopes with the landscape, allows for a flowing series of spaces, surrounding a wind-proof courtyard, and scenic views through out.
