WATERFALL EQUESTRIAN ESTATE, PRIVATE RESIDENCE

Typology Residential Location Waterful Equestrian Estate,Midrand,Johannesburg Architects MMA Design Studio Client Private Client Completion Date 2017 Built Area 1091m² (gross)

A private residence covering 1100m2 built on a 1 morgen stand in the exclusive Waterfall Country and Equestrian Estate north of Johannesburg.

The estate aesthetic guidelines are intended to promote the idea of vernacular farmhouses typical of the South African Highveld re-interpreted in a contemporary way. This determined the outside aesthetic of the house, the form, the roof pitches, external materials and colour palette.

The house is broken into a series of pavilions with floating roofs and is designed to take advantage of the slope of the site, north-easterly views and the benign Johannesburg climate.
