Monika and Erhard’s design for our South Golden Beach house has been a joy for us. While aesthetics is the most obvious attraction, it comes as a result of form following function. The simplicity of design belies the sophisticated and clever hidden engineering details that produce a building that sits lightly on the ground. The house has been orientated to cater for all seasonal changes. In summer exposure to the western sun is minimized and in winter advantage is taken of the northern course of the sun to gain extra warmth. Internally there is optimal use of space. Extending wardrobes and cupboards to ceiling height creates abundant storage and it appears more spacious than the actual dimensions would have us believe. Refresh has ticked all our boxes and we love our house.
