With a beautiful setting along a lagoon and stunning greenery surrounding the house, this brief required us to demolish the existing small house on the plot, and provide for a new four-bedroom home worthy of its surroundings. The envisioned home would include a large storage/workshop area and entertainment/hobbies area for whole family. A lovely open-plan layout consisting of a kitchen space with a large island which could seat 8-10 people with amble space for a large dining table is the perfect spot for entertaining guests. To the left is a TV room and all these spaces have beautiful doors leading onto a decked area that will overlook the lagoon. The lagoon area will get a new jetty leading from the basement level storage space aswell as a small deck added for fishing and enjoying the tranquil water area.
From the TV room there is a long passage which leads to the bedroom wing which comprises of 3 bedrooms with a large shared bathroom aswell as a lovely study which also faces the lagoon. To the end of the passage is the main bedroom area which has a large walk in dressing room, a bedroom space which has doors leading to the deck area aswell as a large wetroom space with separate toilet for privacy.
The client has sourced all materials from Germany, ensuring high-quality finishes with superior functionality. In the section and elevation, a stunning mono-pitch roof is visible, floating over the spaces and protecting windows and doors from the heat of African sun. The less prominent spaces of the second bathroom protrudes from this covering, while the storage space sits comfortably under the floating roof. The finished project is sure to be a head-turner!
