M Road House
Located in a sought after suburb in the North of Johannesburg, the brief called for a design that would maximize privacy and security, while accommodating outdoor living so ingrained in the South African lifestyle. In response to the brief, the plan layout creates two distinct exterior spaces. To the North all the living spaces open onto a private garden, while first floor bedrooms look over planted roofs into the garden below. Entry to the house is located on the south side where a wall of timber meets guests and hides a four car garage. Special features include a wine cellar, a library, mud room, oak bulkhead to the kitchen, plantation shutters, an expansive deck and a landscaped garden.
