House Gauché by Earthworld Architects & Interiors

The site was one of the last open stands in one of the oldest residential golf estates in Pretoria, Silver Lakes. With generous amounts of indigenous Aloes and two prominent rocky outcrops occurring on site, there were challenges posed in terms of siting the building without destroying the vegetation and incurring huge costs to accommodate a conventional structure.

It was thus obvious to limit any disturbance to the site, using the two rocky outcrops as the only places where the building was to touch the ground with the only 2 access points via two staircases, contrasting with one another in character and floating just above the natural ground level.
