Forest Town Long House
Forest Town, Johannesburg, Gauteng

studioMAS: Architect

Date:2004
Type:Homestead
Status:Extant
Street:Epping Road

This was the first house in which we produced architecture of 'frontality', by respecting the idea of a street side and "good manners" in architecture. The street is used as the first layer of the design, in which the front facade is not hidden behind an electric fence, but boldly stands its ground. This residential unit comprises layered uses and the visual overlapping of space, so that the interiors and exteriors appear far larger than they actually are.
