Design proposal for Sillery Estate Unit 11
A contemporary adaptation to traditional Cape Vernacular style architecture.
Key elements in design:
- Utilisation of a lots of full height glazing, and infinity pool shaped around the house to bring the sunlights and "outdoor space" inside.
- Propose double-volume space for common areas to enhance spatial quality.
- Thick cavity walls as thermal mass and the use of shutter windows will ensure year-long thermal comfort.
- Preservation of all the existing trees and some of them are incorporated as design features (inner garden).
