Volmersputz Lodge 146m² GBA
2014 – present
Located in the rural Northern Cape, the client approached JLB Architects with the requirement for the design of a family and guest camp house. Due to the sites remote location, a sustainable structure is developed utilizing materials found on the site itself and in local surrounds. The design encompasses a green approach, with a predominant emphasis on passive heating and cooling through mass walls and ventilation, while relying on solar energy for water heating and gravity feed water storage systems.
The project’s expected completion is in 2015.
