Tube House

An elevated stand surrounded by South African versions of Tuscan presented an opportunity to rather focus on glimpses of nature between the other houses resulting in a ‘cubist’s’ home, framing views. ‘Tubes’ were utilized to ‘frame’ these views but also to act as sun-shade devices. Floating ‘railway sleeper’ stair treads brings contrast to the stark white and sun filled interior. We believe that this house, although it does not seem so at first glance, is the only one in the neighbourhood to be designed for the clients’ needs and the site with it’s unique features and requirements: A simple low maintenance house designed for a busy client and entertainment lifestyle.
