As a philosophical architectural and heritage practitioner I am starting this blog to share information regarding events and concerns involving the built environment, but will probably be more partial to its poetic qualities than its quantitative value.

House Combrink 2013

This home is a contemporary architectural design response within a vineyard estate setting outside Stellenbosch. Serving as a permanent family residence, it provides for a comfortable lifestyle which will endure. Superior materials and finishes will ensure a low life-cycle cost while appropriate energy and thermal efficiency was implemented in the design. Spatial relationships with the garden and views were negotiated to mitigate prevailing winds in the area by means of undercover patios in opposite directions.
