The River View House

With elevated views of the river running through the valley below the site, the house was aptly named the River View House. Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, the site is nestled amidst a small forest of thorn trees and grassland. The compact, yet steep site presented a gradient of 1:1 which brought with it many challenges, but at the same time Gottsmann Architects saw many more opportunities. This set the tone for the project and so the concept began. Upon approaching the home on street level, a person is led past finely detailed Scandinavian timber screens opening up and leading one across a bridge suspended over water. The large open-plan layout provides unobstructed views of the forest from within the interior spaces of the house.... Meer

The plan has ambitious goals in terms of architecture and social engagement. It is pioneering and stands as a marker in the urban environment.

The urban layo... Meer
