Darnaway Long House
Forest Town, Johannesburg, Gauteng

studioMAS: Architect
Street:Darnaway Street

Our aim was to design a spacious, lock-up-and-go house that uses the stand and space efficiently - a secure house, with open indoor and outdoor living spaces and a private bedroom area. Expanding on the idea of “frontality”, this house too becomes the secure boundary wall, as it rises three floors from the street boundary and so also ensures that no space is wasted on the available land. Its striking façade belies the conventions of traditional residential architectural typologies.
