The team from Three 14 Architects joined with SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects) in 2012 for developing the Glen 2961 House, a residential project located on Glen Avenue, Cape Town, South Africa. The customers requested to have their existing home rebuilt for being able to match with their family’s needs.
The project consisted in the enlarging of the living spaces while creating several private ones. Also, it offers a solution for the powerful winds that seasonally torment the area and connects the interior spaces with the outside ones, which consist in some beautiful enclosed gardens. The structure is dominated by a significant use of concrete, oak cabinetry and ceilings and painted bagged brickwork. The living spaces are a perfect shelter for the family that they embrace, offering protection and a cheerful environment.
