Bloemfontein house

Collection by Marius Du Plessis


30B Jim Fouché Street Bloemfontein. ​​In my second and third year of studying I designed and built my own house. The concept for the design was taken from the big Karee trees on the erf. The trees were left in tact and the design was developed around them. All the materials are exposed and will change with time – oxidation will occur and the steel will corrode, the wood cladding will crack and inflect. The stone fence and the steel entrance gate compliment the rugged feeling of the house.
