House Goodman
Hyde Park, Johannesburg, Gauteng

MICHAEL SUTTON and GRIFFITHS: Architect
Michael Kidd SUTTON: Design Architect

Date:1963
Type:Homestead
Status:Unknown

Linda and Tony Goodman (of the Goodman Galleries) had bought a site of a solid rock outcrop, thus the house required no foundations, being built directly on the ground rock, following the contours of the rock face. Its inspiration lay in the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, the brick color chosen to resemble the stones of which this had been constructed (Sutton, 2015:24).
