The 50 Ha Farm is located on the banks of the Vaal river, Free State.
Construction Cost: R 1,5 mil. The brief was to transform the once commercial farm into a private getaway for the owners family.
This was done by redesigning the whole site by placing high earth mounds to create privacy, remove all exotic vegetation and kikuyu and replace it with native grasses, reeds and Trees.
The House was to be completely integrated with its environment.
Further vegetation studies on the farm confirmed that the farm was in an extremely challenging climate with very cold winters -10 and very hot summers + 30. This determined the planting/design concept to a great extend with Dams and wetland systems .
