Celebrating invention and authenticity, the AR presents a snapshot of work in progress from around the world
This house on the edge of the Great Karoo Desert is a thoughtful response to place, climate and the cosmos. It’s a retreat devised forimmersion in the desert landscape and for enjoying clear views of the night sky.
Different spaces are orientated towards peaks of the neighbouring mountains, and openings capture cooling breezes and frame views of the earth and heavens. Structured on an east-west axis around two courtyards, the house’s zigzag plan suggests flexibility - it can grow over time as the needs of the occupants change.
