Gutter (2002 | 2003)
Photographs: Jan Smit

The clients wanted a Free State sandstone farm house. The stone, steel and roof tiles were all recycled from old sheds. Jannie, an engineer, built the house himself and Zanet, his wife, supervised the process. This created the opportunity to experiment with the structure. The house in its setting gave Zanet the opportunity to design the garden as an interaction between natural and man-made, resulting in an oasis. The 270 degree wrap- around veranda allows for entertaining friends all year round.
