Sandpiper Addition Floor Plan
Home office / Airbnb / flat

Work from home or Airbnb? Having purchased a new home this client’s brief called for a space that could be a home office or an Airbnb rental unit above the existing garages. The client opted for a prefabricated building system due to its lightweight nature and speed of erection. Meik was appointed by a company that offers a prefabricated solution to design the unit.

The Dream Actualised (Design response)

Along with the site constraints the prefabricated construction system is underpinned by a modular grid.

The final one-bedroom unit is set back from the street and side boundary to reduce the impact on the neighbour’s sun and to capture the amazing view of Table Mountain. High-level windows act as a means of getting north light into the unit without compromising the privacy of both the existing home and the neighbour.
