Thatched cottage for Teichman, Milner Street, Pretoria. Single storey 3 bedroom residence. H-shaped north facing plan. Gumpole roof construction. The cottage is symmetrical and a disciplined design, reminiscent of his early cottage designs, especially the Laurels Cottage (1930). However, this time the design is a series of “cottages” defining various pockets of spaces – almost like a small village. The notion of the house as a village is perpetuated in the later Greenwood Village, but reappears amongst others, more informally in the house and studio for Essias Bosch in Witrivier.
Sketchplan: groundfloor plan, south elevation & section through lounge and fireplace. See also 07565.
