House Basson, in Pretoria, South Africa. This home is nestled on a hill in a Nature Reserve. The sloping site has a dual character, opening up to the views in the north while becoming more intimate and personal as you move southwards towards the nature reserve’s green belt. Therefore the house has been positioned as high as possible and bordering on the green belt to make maximum use of the site’s views and natural location. Completed, 2012, Mathews and Associates Architects. Photo by MAAA
