Project Description: OLIVEHILL Architects was approached by a developer to design a sustainable village in the old Transvaal Architectural idiom on a game farm outside of Bela-Bela (Warmbaths). The development consisted of 150m≤ to 200m≤ housing units concentrated around a horseshoe shaped green area in the middle of a bushveld game farm. The units are all self sufficient where water and electricity is concerned. To save on construction wastage and to minimise the damage caused by construction operations, it was decided to make use of Light steel frame construction method to construct the units. The light steel frame buildings would have been finished according to the required style.
