Veel succes toegewenst !

We are a small modern architectural practice, dedicated to design excellence. As a child I was awed by my father's big drawing board (he was an engineer) and after reading Ayn Rand's 'The Fountainhead', I decided to become an architect.

I studied at UPE where I received my Bachelor in Buildings Arts and later Bachelor of Architecture (1996). My early career started as a candidate architect in Tableview, whereafter I joined an architectural company in Fransschoek for about 3 years. I accepted a position in Paarl and moved there. In 2001 I decided to broaden my horizon and gain European experience. I went abroad and settled in Antw

Ons het dit baie geniet om by twee klein projekte op 'n plaas digby Vanwyksdorp betrokke te wees. Beide projekte is kleinskalig wat ons die geleentheid gegee het om te speel met sensitiewe argitektuur in die mooi landelike omgewing.

Die geboue is oornagverblyf vir 'n baie mooi staproete op die plaas Moose Valley. Ons het natuurlike materiale gebruik om die strukture te versag en groot dakoorhange skep voldoende skadu. Die sanitere geriewe is verwyderd van die akkomodasie geplaas om doelbewus ongerief te skep deur blootstelling aan die natuurlike elemente.

Moose Valley consists of 2x small projects on the farm Moose Valley, close to Vanwyksdorp in the Klein Karoo. Both building sites have compelling and uninterrupted north facing views over the Rooiberg Mountain.

A sweeping 'bird's wing' roof structure provides shade from the scorching sun, to a fully detached accommodation structure underneath. This setup also allows for airflow between the dwelling and roof above - providing further passive cooling.

A rudimentary base camp is provided for people who enjoy weekend breakaways in nature and trail walking. We tried to capture the spirit of surviving in the harsh Klein Karoo environment, and purposefully expose the visitors to some limited unpleasantness - like outside toilets (without the long drop). The camp's accommodation is basically a hut with an open plan space for the bedroom, kitchenette and living area.

Huis Leuenberger is gelee in Oubaai en het 'n fantastiese wes-uitsig oor die Indiese Osean en Mosselbaai, wat ongewenste probleme met oorverhitting en laat-middagson veroorsaak.

Die aangrensende huise is modern en ons het probeer om ooreenkomstig Huis Leuenberger se vormgewing aan te spreek ... of dalk is die waarheid meer dat ons van moderne argitektuur hou en die geleentheid aangegryp het.

Die relatief dominante argitektuur is versag met natuurlike elemente - soos lae klip muurjies, hout sonskerm-panele en muurbekleedsel, asook die skep van diep skaduwees by die stoepe en balkonne.

Ons glo dat die woning 'n positiewe bydrae tot Oubaai is.

The Leuenberger residence is situated on a very steep site in the Oubaai Golf Estate, with splendid west facing sea views and access from the east.

Contemporary architecture reflects the neighbouring houses with natural timber and stone elements providing an additional layer of warmth. Sloping roof elements reflects the inclined nature of the site and accentuate the important interior spaces with raised ceilings.

The owner plans to retire in the house, and from the outset all the required amenities were planned for easy circulation on street level. All bedrooms and living areas are provided with ocean views, and lives onto covered patios.

Dealing with the west orientated views and accompanying low level afternoon sun, posed a major challenge. Roof overhangs, sliding panels, retractable shade cloth screens and high-tech glazing panels were employed to protect interior spaces against glare and overheating.

Ons was bevoorreg om betrokke te kon wees by Huis Janse van Rensburg in Oubaai. Dit was lekker om te kon speel met die verskillende materiale wat gebruik is.

House Janse van Rensburg is located in Oubaai Golf Estate on a relatively flat premise. The site is ideally orientated with north facing mountain views and road access on the southern side.

The building envelope was broken up into separate basic architectural forms, to ensure a soft, recognizable and human-scaled character for the dwelling. A depth of experience is provided by the architectural layering of contemporary elements, using contrasting and honest materials like timber, concrete, stone and slate tiles. A dash of playfulness is provided, by flirting with some navy architectural components and raising of the hat to the close proximity of the ocean.

The narrow rectangular shape of the property was utilized to provide a sheltered interior courtyard against the prevalent windy conditions, and also serves as focal point for two bedrooms and the kitchen area.

Ons wens al ons kliente en vriende 'n pragtige nuwe jaar toe. Die jaar het goed begin en ons is baie dankbaar vir die ondersteuning.

Nestled against a steeply sloped hill in Hersham, House Daniels commands impressive south facing sea views. The site is severely impacted by a domineering timber structure situated on the neighbouring property. This required a non-submissive response - cantilevered box shaped structures were utilized to present a muscular architectural impression. The use of contrasting colour and floor to ceiling fenestration, further accentuates the floating and authoritative nature of the cubistic envelope.

Covered patios provide full exposure to the splendid ocean views for all the living areas and bedrooms. Due to the pervasive cold sea wind, an alternative outside entertainment area is provided on the sheltered north facing side of the house. North sun is allowed into the dwelling through an extensive glass facade at the open staircase, which also winds around a double storey internal plant feature.

We are very satisfied with the development of House Loock.

This private dwelling is situated on the rolling and windy hills surrounding Hartenbos. The steep site enabled magnificent sea views to all the living areas and main bedroom suite, with a garage on basement level.

The dwelling's curved and flowing aesthetics is a reflection of the natural surround and ever-changing nature of the ocean beyond, while a prominent natural stone structure provides visual anchorage.

The main living areas are all sea facing and provided with covered patios. Due to harsh sea wind conditions, the entertainment area was moved to the back of the house. Sought after north sun penetrates the entertainment area through an exotic plant garden, and on the western side of the property it spills over into a focus tree courtyard. This courtyard also serves two en-suite guest bedrooms which are accessible from outside the house.

We are very proud of House Erasmus, Glen Irene Estate - Centurion.

House Erasmus is located in Irene Glen Estate - Centurion, on a gently sloped 8500m² site with magnificent western views over Pretoria. The dolomite soil conditions posed a serious risk, with a small pocket of relative stable ground conditions on the northern side of the site.

The main design consideration was the trade off between beautiful (but over-heating) western views and the preferred north orientation of the dwelling. The contemporary architecture is softened by incorporating natural timber elements into the design and the use of local stone to blend the structure with the natural surround. The architectural forms are broken up into separate wings to closely reflect the different internal activities.

The ground floor layout was specifically designed for entertainment purposes and the open plan layout spills onto a covered patio with western views. As protection against the harsh afternoon sun, the main external patio and swimming pool were positioned on the eastern side of the dwelling. A central garden feature welcomes visitors at the entrance and further connects the internal spaces with the covered patio.

The bedroom quarters are on the first floor and a 'floating' bridge separates the main bedroom wing from the other guest bedrooms. All bedrooms are north facing and provided with covered balconies.

Ons is trots op die bemarkingsmateriaal vir die Akademie Groepsbehuisingsprojek. Die konsep was bekostigbare eenhede met 'n moderne vormgewing, wat meerwaarde toevoeg en 'n luukse tema skep.
