|HOUSE SIMBITHI 1
Status: Completed 2007
Location: Simbithi Eco-Estate, Ballito, Kwa-Zulu Natal
This home was designed as a spec home for prospective owners. The topography of the site dictated the split level design which created the living areas upstairs at driveway / entrance level & the Bedroom area component downstairs leading out into the lush indigenous bush typical of the Simbithi Eco Estate. Both living & bedroom areas relate particularly well with the surrounding environment bringing the beautiful vegetative external elements into the home; thereby creating for the prospective owners a unique & satisfying synergy with nature. Natural materials; such as sandstone cladding, timber & glass were effectively used, not only to blend in with its natural surroundings but also as a response to the design ethos of Simbithi Eco Estate.
