Top Durban architectural practice designs new dream home
The owner, Mr Charles Van Eck, recently completed a remarkable project – constructing his dream house in KwaZulu-Natal. Designed by Elphick Proome Architects, the house is an elegantly curved building on a spectacular site overlooking a gorge in Everton, Durban.
A striking feature is the curved roofing in RHEINZINK, which was also used for the porte cochere. A key factor in specifying RHEINZINK was that no other roofing material could have been shaped to meet the design requirements.
The roof level of the house is below the driveway, highly visible and most attractive. The installation by Spenglerei Muehle Roofing, a South African-German zinc contractor located in Port Elizabeth, was superb, and the result is aesthetically pleasing.
