Photographs taken by Morne Pienaar of the Studio and House Essias Bosch on July 13, 2007. The house and studio sit very comfortably on the site. Forms and layout are more informal and simple, while reminiscent of the Greenwood House of earlier where circular and rectangular forms are combined. A granary-like structure holds the water tanks for the studio, while the kitchen yard for the house has now been transformed into a circular “kitchen kraal”. The living room is positioned so as to make the most of the beautiful views toward the north. Due to the tight budget, gum pole roof construction was used together with bagged brick textures. The tower, with monkey heads, reminds of east African Aksumite architectural traditions.
A very humble dwelling.
