Architecture that respects the environment and celebrates the scenery is at the heart of Monaghan Farm.
Simple, yet sophisticated single-storey homes harmoniously blending into their surroundings.
Bach Village is north-facing, with an abundance of light in all of the rooms and a breath-taking horizon view. Stone, the colour of warm bread, is all natural and derived from the area.
The homes are eco-friendly and placed on plots of up to 2,000m2. An unusual appurtenance are the long horizontal windows, using horizontal shapes to emphasize the skyline. Such a setting will not be seen on the South African residential market again.
Low vents and high windows are used for ventilation, the insulation is environmentally-friendly, and rainwater is stored and harvested in free-standing water tanks that are designed to hunker down into the landscape.
