Thulabos Residentialusing new urbanism principles gleaned from successful development worldwide
Using new urbanism principles gleaned from successful development worldwide, the double storey units are placed close to the road to enhance neighbourly communication and urban policing but also freeing up the remainder of the 300m² stands.
The ground floor living areas feature 3m wide double barn doors in all directions which enhance the typical South African outdoor living but also “extends” ones living room beyond the house to the boundary walls.
The architect kept virtually all the trees that were on the site before and adapted the layout accordingly. This resulted in a unique little village with narrow streets winding through established trees – it almost seems as if the project has been there for decades.
