Two Houses in Rondebosch

2005-2007

Two houses designed and built on a sloping site. The houses were designed to be similar but not the same. 
 
Principles for this design were:
 
Always relating to the context and designing with the landscape;
Making use of natural materials;
Finding inventive ways to provide security;
Allowing for maximum advantage to be taken of the views while maintaining privacy;
Providing richness and variety within a strong ordering idea.
