Text description provided by the architects. New Erection of 2-Storey Semi-Detached Dwelling House with Attic

The front has a westerly orientation and thus the house is turned around to face the back which is more private.  A series of sleek vertical aluminium screens protect the house from the sun whilst allowing the wind to pass through.  The entrance hall has a reflecting pool and a high volume.  The stairs travel up the 3 levels alongside a granite clad wall to reach the master bedroom and roof terrace at the top and rear.  The master bathroom has a free standing vanity, bath and wc with a skylight and light chandelier on top.
