House Sher in Johannesburg, South Africa by Eftychis Architects

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Article source: Eftychis Architects

House is defined along an axis which separates the living areas on the south side and the Gym and guest bedroom on the north.

The linear axis is pronounced by a tower-like lobby and ends with a natural filtered eco-pool as the focal point. Concrete and facebrick walls flank the space from which a steel staircase hangs from steel dowels defined by the meandering skylight above.

Dennis Hurley Centre (DHC) in Durban, South Africa by Ruben Reddy Architects

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Ruben Reddy Architects

Denis Hurley fought for equality of all and social justice.  In 1951, at age 31, he became the youngest Catholic bishop in the world and the archbishop of Durban. He retired as archbishop in 1992, becoming chancellor of the University of Natal from 1993 to 1998. He continued to work as parish priest of Emmanuel Cathedral well into his eighties.  He was an outspoken opponent of apartheid and a driving force in a 1957 declaration by the bishops of South Africa that described apartheid as “intrinsically evil”.   Archbishop Denis Hurley dedicated a great part of his live to defend the rights of the underprivileged, in an extremely difficult and politically turbulent period in the history of this country. The Denis Hurley Centre strives to continue the legacy of Archbishop Denis Hurley.

Bosjes Chapel in Western Cape, South Africa by Steyn Studio

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Article source: Steyn Studio 

The new chapel, set within a vineyard in South Africa, is designed by South-African born Coetzee Steyn of London based Steyn Studio. Its serene sculptural form emulates the silhouette of surrounding mountain ranges, paying tribute to the historic Cape Dutch gables dotting the rural landscapes of the Western Cape. Constructed from a slim concrete cast shell, the roof supports itself as each undulation dramatically falls to meet the ground. Where each wave of the roof structure rises to a peak, expanses of glazing adjoined centrally by a crucifix adorn the façade.

Cliff house / Flying container house in Johannesburg, South-Africa by Architecture for a change (pty)ltd

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Article source: Architecture for a change (pty)ltd 

The main idea was to create a lightweight, off the grid, and affordable house. The design philosophy relates to critical regionalism within architectural theory. The South-Africa residential design market is still stuck with conventional building methods that aren’t suitable for our environment (colonial building methods). We had to analyse our current solutions, available technology and where the future is heading before we could start designing this house.
