Grace moments create relationships, which in turn, create spaces, that in turn, create a blessing. Through the works of Phillip Barlow, we were commissioned, to create a house, that links people to God, nature and people. Visibility and transparency, without, revealing the inner private rooms, conceptually drove architectural design intervention. At first we could not fit the program onto one site, so our client bought the adjacent road from the estate, so we could expand the brief. We designed the house to be completely transparent and completely private, completely outside or completely inside, at any given time. This complexity was achieved by layering screens, sliding walls and shutting doors. A private courtyard entertains guests away from wind and weather, whilst an open stoep frames mountain views and extends the lounge/kitchen areas. Recessed into concrete solids, roof lights link entrance halls to the sky. Dual front doors make it simple to access from the garage courtyard or visitors parking bays at front. Gracefully the landscape forms an integral part of the success of this solid private house.
