appointment: architecture & interior design
arabella country estate
completed 2007

Primarily a summer retreat, this house balances a specific brief within strict estate guidelines. Two main building forms are separated by a doubled side glass link that enables a quick response to the prevailing wind conditions without compromising the connection to the outside. The interior design and furnishings reinforces the inherent beauty of the natural fynbos surroundings with the specific use of materials, colour and texture.
