Westville North Garden Centre, Pitlochry Road, Chiltern Hills, Westville, South Africa
The sloping terrain of House Elphick’s site meant that the garages needed to be on the street boundary, which is linked to the house by a suspended flight of stairs. On arrival, the bedrooms are half-a-floor up, the living spaces half-a-floor down, and open directly and expansively onto the deck, which includes a pool and garden. Interestingly, the design is organised along a strong central axis yet enjoys the best orientation. This building has particular significance because it is the first domestic house in KwaZulu-Natal to be peer acknowledged.
