Area: 630m2, Completion: September 2010, Location: Houghton, Johannesburg Description: The U-shaped configuration of the house capitalizes on the location of the neighbouring house and the narrow stand to create a courtyard. This format is perfect as a means of creating a secure environment. The entire ground floor opens, with glass doors, onto a tranquil courtyard with a grassy mound and massive granite boulders. The kinked entrance facade of white-painted facebrick is Houghton vernacular with neo-medieval twist.
