House in the garden by the sea

Kevin Lloyd Architects as Architects

This house, built on a double stand in an exclusive private residential estate, designed, documented and project managed by KLA is an exemplary project of how when budget and purpose are present the garden and the house can become a splendid one! The indigenous garden includes planted concrete roofs, pool terrace with stepped planters, stone garden extension of the pool, firepit boma in the future forest area, study courtyard with cycads, staircase courtyard lush tropical garden, street entrance garden and sidewalk. Planted large boulder driveway retaining wall. Phil Page the Landscaper did a tremendous job in designing and executing the gardens as well as managing to source and place the huge boulders throughout the garden.
