House Henning

Location: Zimbali, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 499sqm


This Zimbali family home has magnificent golf and sea views.  To capitalize on the location, glass rooms were designed to capture the landscape.  Due to the prevailing winds, a back courtyard was created to extend the entertainment capabilities of the house.  This courtyard incorporates a braai patio, garden and swimming pool, which has steps over it leading to the pub.  High-end finishes complete this luxurious home.



House Pengelly

Location: Dunkirk, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 200sqm

Mike and Cynthia’s Dunkirk home is a magical corner stand with dense bush views on two sides.  The main feature of this home is the exposed trusses and stack doors which open up the house inviting the outside in. In this way, the vistas were maximised, so much so that two side of this home literally stack away.




House Geyer

Location: Dunkirk, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 246sqm


This home required careful planning as the clients wanted to have a comfortable three bedroom home, while making sure that each square metre counts. 

The result is a beautiful, airy home with dual courtyards, so that outside living is possible – whatever the weather. 

The exposed trusses are striking accent to the main living space.


House Duane

Location: Simbithi, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 302sqm


Care was taken when designing Keith and Ann’s retirement home in Simbithi to make the most of the beautiful established trees on site.  The house opens up to the outside and welcomes nature in, resulting in a light and airy feel.  The house was designed with the couple’s existing furniture in mind, resulting in a home with all the special pieces fitting impeccably.



House Low

Location: Zimbali, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area:  481sqm

Due to the nature of the site, this pristine Zimbali family home has been designed on split levels.  These levels create varying volumes, making one very aware of the verticality of the house.  As the site is on top of a hill, the external living spaces were specifically designed to take into account wind direction and to maximize the panoramic sea views.  Warm wooden floors on the first floor, an exquisite timber staircase and contemporary bathrooms complete this holiday home.


House Bouhaus Family Trust

Location: Brettenwood, KwaZulu Natal
Building Area: 332sqm

Glass, glass and more glass! This flowing, single storey Brettenwood home has impressive views of Heron Bridge Dam, which was used to its full potential. The family bedrooms have been placed around an open courtyard providing light and views where normally there would be a closed passage.  A feature home filled with light and space has been created.



House Stefano (Curt & Raelene)

Location: Simbithi, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 464sqm

This family home was designed with entertaining and flow in mind.  The kitchen adjoins both the dining room and lounge.  All the main living areas flow onto an extensive covered patio leading into the garden.  The exposed trusses accentuate the feeling of space and are thermally efficient in the hot KZN climate.



House Serton

Location: Simbithi, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 464sqm

This family home captures the free spirit of arty Olga.  Few chances come along where we are presented with such a gorgeous site. Care was taken to maximize the fantastic forest views, while not forfeiting privacy.  One enters the house on a split level overlooking a double volume lounge.  A large corner window in this room affords views of the magnificent Natal Fig trees in the back garden.  The lounge flows out onto a covered deck leading to a swimming pool nestled in indigenous bush.



House Muller

Location: Zimbali, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area: 514sqm

Nestled in an indigenous forest, the house is almost hidden from view.  Internally Jack’s home is a dramatic structure: a play of light and volume, designed on an incredibly sloped site.  On various levels, the lounges and bedrooms open up onto timber decks, courtyards, covered patios and a swimming pool, each with their own special features and atmosphere.


House Bouwer

Location: Dunkirk, KwaZulu Natal
Building Area: 551sqm

This contemporary, family home has been designed to open up – welcoming the outside in.  The beautiful Natal bush is the setting for this home and is best viewed from the wraparound covered patio.  The house has been orientated to make the most of northern light, while still maintaining a sense of privacy.  Green spaces have been created off almost all of the rooms.  An extensive roof garden connects the upper level home office to nature. 



House Johnson

Location: Brettenwood, KwaZulu Natal
Building Area: 328sqm


Nevil and Penny Johnson’s home in Barbet Close is a tribute to effective thermal design, as the high ceilings, insulation, deep overhangs, pergolas and cross ventilation reduce the internal temperatures considerably.  This was of great importance due to the Northwest orientation of the property.  The tranquil water and bush vistas needed to be emphasised, while insuring that the house remains comfortable.


House Stefano (Mannie & Gail)

Location: Simbithi, KwaZulu Natal

Building Area:  557sqm


The brief for this home was to house a couple, but to be extensive enough for Mannie to work from home and to cater for visits from grandchildren.   As this home borders on one of the main roads in Simbithi, a courtyard space was created to act as a buffer between the home and the road.  This courtyard allows the home to open up on both sides, which maximised ventilation while ensuring privacy.
