House Coetzer

In eget sapien vitae massa rhoncus lacinia. Nullam at leo nec metus aliquam semper.

The clients  dream was to build a classic French chateau on a one hectare property located in Mooikloof Estate East of Pretoria.


The plan form is a square with two wings extending towards the East. Access to an internal courtyard with garages is gained via a bridged arch. The bridge gives access on the first floor to separate living and guest quarters.


The living, kitchen and formal dining areas open up towards a pool leading into the garden beyond. The success of the design lies in the proportions and use of materials which mirror the stately homes found in rural France.
