Thomas Gouws House
Episode: 11

From the outside the house is a simple minimalist box with bold clean lines. Warm wood and stone textures links the building to the more conventional neighbouring houses.

The house is based on a traditional H-plan shape. The two courtyards created by this layout are screened off and treated as outdoor extensions of the interior spaces. A central double volume living area forms the hart of the house which opens up onto both courtyards and also connects the side wings with supporting services and bedrooms.

The building responds to the climatic conditions of it's setting. On the northern side sliding screens can open or close to provide wind and sun control. This also provides various degrees of privacy from the golf coarse and act as a security screen. A pergola over the pool courtyard provides shading in summer, but lets through the lower winter sun. An evaporative cooling system, solar geysers and a water underfloor heating system provide the additional green and energy efficient heating / cooling for the house.

With the design of the Interior the clients' extensive collection of art and antique cape furniture is combined with modern pieces and finishes. Bold accent colour is used throughout as link between old and new and gives a sense of fun and playfulness to the interior.
