The site overlooks the Mooikloof Valley towards the east. The house is designed due north to allow winter sun in but the roof overhangs excludes the sun in summer. The living area is linked with big windows and sliding doors to the covered stoep on the east and the pool next to the stoep is above the visitors flat on the lower level.
The internal living area can be enlarged by opening the two large doors dividing the living space and the 4 garages. The double volume living area with windows above the bedroom suite and study on the north side allows maximum daylight into the internal living areas.
The curved roof design reduces and softens the internal volumes.
