Riverbend Estate Kyalami, Gauteng

This secure estate comprises 50 duplex and triplex houses which were sold for between R2.2 million and R2.8 million. The individual houses vary between 190m² and 240m² and were built with hipped and gable roofing.

The architect specified grey slate-styled roof concrete tiles as an aesthetic enhancement which adds a touch of class to the complex. More than any other aspect of this project, it is the roofing which gives it its unique architectural identity. For example, on the triple and some of the double storey units each building section is offset from its neighbour and the individual roofing of each highlights this differentiation in an eye catching manner.
