House Scholtz 2011

Modernism revisited with sustainability in mind. This structure – with the Kogelberg mountains in the background – traces the contours of the sloped site on pad and ground beam foundation. Living space extends onto wood decks. A diverse selection of low maintenance materials defines the indoor / outdoor flow through a reserved use of form and linear elements. Water-wise instruments, good insulation and optimum use of passive and active solar within an indigenous garden contextualizes this house.

 

“I still can’t believe that it looks just like the model. We love the house as much as it loves us.”
– Liezel Bohdanowicz
