noah's ark

Set in a protected nature reserve, along a beautiful stretch of the Vaal river; Noah's Ark is a rural retreat boasting uninterrupted panoramic views of the Vaal river + an indigenous protected forest to the East.

The holiday home is conceptualised as a series of 5 blocks on two wings, arranged along a central protected courtyard and glass entrance foyer. The east-west gentle slope of the site created an opportunity to capture eastern river views, maximum north light + by minimising the width of rooms to be one room wide we were able to take advantage of prevailing winds for cross ventilation, thereby reducing reliance on mechanical systems.
