Project Details

Project Type: Single Residential Architectural

Style: Contemporary House

Location: Ebotse Golf & Country Estate, South Africa

Project Description The contemporary home is located on a steep embankment within Ebotse Golf Estate, Gauteng. Both the site and the brief from the client called for a house design which included views of the surrounds. Gottsmann Architects utilised the steepness of the site to design a contemporary home that has primary views towards the lake and the golf course below. These wide panoramic views inspired the project name, House Vista. Glass and concrete were the main building materials used, while timber elements created texture and warmth in the design. The use of concrete as building material allowed for deep cantilevering overhangs as well as open planes. This ultimately generated a design which was perceived to be floating on its various levels. Cantilevering concrete slabs layered lightly above one another reveal changing views with each level of the residence. The Large glass sliding doors open up to expansive vistas while the metamorphosing quality of the sliding screens provide various degrees of privacy for the client. The house ultimately transforms between the extroverted and introverted, adapting to the mood of the inhabitant.
