Simola, Knysna

River Road Home

River Road Home has an interesting site. The property is angular and sloping, and has very good orientation. The site also has magnificent views of the Knysna River.

Consequently, the home was designed around two diverging axes on a split level. We also designed the home to live introspectively. The home has two living courtyards on two levels. As a result all functions engage the excellent views of the Knysna River. The layout also creates complete privacy from neighbours.

Water and lush vegetation has been used to soften and enhance the courtyard experience. This also provides a visual extension of the surrounding beauty.

The design considers both passive heating and cooling. Consequently the living spaces are both visually pleasant and also very comfortable.
