Residence Marx – Oubaai Golf Estate, George
Completion date – 2005

Conceptually the layout of this dwelling resembles a Japanese Courtyard house.  The plan divides the plot into three areas namely approach, sanctuary and view.  The courtyard (sanctuary) is the dividing element between public (hard) spaces and private (soft) spaces.  The section is an interpretation of a Japanese curved roof.  The copper sheet roofs are leaves floating lightly on glass clerestory glazing that allows north sunlight to wash the interior.
