8 Norwich Drive, Bishopscourt

This family home which was designed in close collaboration with the clients, is organized around a number of courtyards, which filter different qualities of light and are each strategically located for a particular experience of the striking mountain view.

The concept of the house is drawn from the image of a group of tree canopies and tree-houses floating over the ground plane, as an evocation of the well-forested leafy surroundings. A key aspect of the design was the extensive incorporation of sustainable design principles within a contemporary South African design idiom.
