Westcliff Pavilion // Silvio Rech Lesley Carstens Architecture and Interiors


This sophisticated glass box blends modernism with the heritage of the Victorian farmhouse. Westcliff pavilion, designed by Silvio Rech Lesley Carstens Architecture and Interiors, is set on what is essentially a rocky highveld koppie. The owners wanted a place, separate from their house, where they could relax and entertain, and where guests or visiting family members could stay.

The architects tried to marry the glass box and the rammed earth using primal elements in a modern way,’ says Silvio. The rusted metal of the outside wall and gate, the rock, the rammed earth, the water of the indoor pool, the fireplaces and the ironwood sleepers all display the materials in their natural state, but take on a sleek minimalism in their design.
