Residential Additions and Alterations
The client for this project is a family with an active and sport–loving father in the finance sector, an artistic wife, and their two young daughters. This creative and social family is fond of the outdoor life and approached MR Architects to assist with the renovation of their existing home to allow for open plan living and a greater connection to their underutilized outdoor space. Windhoek has close to year-round perfect evening temperatures and thus a well-functioning outdoor entertainment and social space, with a good connection to the kitchen, was essential to suit their lifestyle. Careful consideration was given to maximizing the use of available existing built resources to optimal effect whilst ensuring good passive design and low energy consumption.
