The plan of the house was inspired by
the Herbert Jacobs House of Frank Loyd Wright, 1936, which was an early, but also a fine example of his Usonion Projects. The house was designed in an L-Shape, with the living- and dining room, as well as kitchen accommodated via the one wing and the bedrooms within the scope of the other. Both wings open up to a communal outside space. The bathrooms are cladded with curved corrugated iron sheets as to symbolize the water reservoirs and dams typically found in the Free State landscape. The orientation of the house opens up to an ever changing palate of colours of the forest on the North Eastern side. This house was never built to impress, but rather to humble, to learn and above all, to keep my dream alive!
