2 Luxury Bush Villas in the Madikwe Game Reserve - 2005

European clients required a full architectural & project management service. The site, a very wooded bank of the Marico River, required maximum sensitivity to its large trees. The brief was for a typical thatch bushveld vernacular. The design resolution was to collide rectangular spaces at the corners, in thatch a geometric balancing act that dispensed with unnecessary passages and created courtyards in which the surrounding trees continue to grow.  Stone, timber and glass were expressed with fine attention to junctions and detail.
