RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS

In the alterations to House Lijnes in Noordhoek Valley, ancient Egyptian methods of construction were used to build an inspiring 6,0m diameter domed space without the use of any formwork. Non-toxic paints were used extensively and glass bottles were recycled in the creation of the central chandelier and colourful patterned fanlight above the front door. The windows and timber lintels were made of recycled Oregon timber. The client for this project was Engineer: John Lijnes of Pula Engineering and the main Contractor was Lee Slabber of Lee Slabber Projects.
