Elphick Proome Architects complete the Vaal River Estate Studio in South Africa 

Located on a private riverside estate, this signature studio annex is a dramatic construct with an angular skeletal roof element set on a series of solid elements expressed in contrasting materials. A kitchen and bathroom form the eastern enclosure and utility space to the south being articulated by an entrance and cantilevered canopy. A glazed bay on the north frames grassland views and admits winter sun, while a large glazed wall addresses the west vista. Morning light filters through the canted clerestory of the truncated floating roof which expands spatially from the entrance northwards, the whole creating an electric space challenging the senses at every turn.
