“Africa has her mysteries, and even a wise man cannot understand them. But a wise man respects them” – Miriam Makeba
The houses on the CWE were designed with the deepest respect for our great and beautiful africa. The architect’s brief was to “bring the outside, in”. This was achieved through the integration of open plans, high ceilings, corner windows, floor to ceiling glass and deep patios. Open plans allow for one room to flow into the next, in an effort to eventually enable every space to effortlessly flow outdoors, without the interruption of physical boundaries; high ceilings allow for seemingly more open rooms.
