New Home by AiArchitects (Pty) Ltd: Hacienda in Pringle Bay

A new home by Architect Andrew Horne of Ai Architects in Pringle Bay combines the double dwelling principle of urban densification within existing settlements to create a two-family hacienda. There is a growing tendency towards both working from home and moving to smaller enclaves. This trend combines here with living near and in nature with gravel roads, hikes and beaches as easily accessible as the well-appointed village centre, with its deli’s, eateries, galleries and shops.

The design maintains the wild fringes and also the bulk of the natural vegetation. More cultivated garden courts are contained in courtyards or green rooms. There are two wings for two families. Each comprising of either three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms or two bedrooms with a separate studio or consulting room. The third bedroom or studio, whichever is preferred, has its own external access from the entrance courtyard. This could be used as a separate flat, holiday suite, gallery or consulting room.

The design facilitates the sharing of land costs and spaces. It creates two individual living spaces each with its own kitchen and scullery and living/dining space. The central hall, or dining room and BBQ patio is shared or is booked by arrangement. retired grandparents could this co-exist with a family, while each party being able to withdraw into their own private spaces.
