Squiggle House

Line, curve, cave.


Bands of walls rise up from the landscape, immersing the occupant into cracks, crevices and canyons; spaces deep and cool from the outside climate, but washed in a dappled mix of ever-changing direct and indirect light at secret moments.

Sited in a magnificent landscape on the fringes of Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, this residence offers primordial undertones referencing our relationship to the earth, the ground and the sky – both alluding to a space made from and within a geological setting, and affording an enveloping shelter which is climate and experience responsive, also offering generous views to the surrounding landscape.
