Here is another project from the creative team at SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects, meant to meet your every expectation when it comes to leaving luxuriously. The Head Road 1816 project is a three-story contemporary residential project located in the Fresnaye neighborhood of Cape Town, South Africa. Especially developed for a young family, the massive house accommodates four bedrooms and offers a good example of indoor-outdoor connection.

According to SAOTA, “the language of the house reflects bold contemporary lines and extended planes, but the introduction of timber has softened and blurred this distinction. Screening elements ensuring privacy have become an integral component of the aesthetic. The juxtaposition of solid mass to large expanses of transparency is transitioned with semi-transparent slatted screens and shutters. The architectural language takes its cues from a Spanish approach to simple cubic volumes with punctured openings and planar walls that open up to create generous ocean views”. How would you comment on this new SAOTA project and on the architecture development in South Africa in general?

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light
