The main bedroom leads off of the living area, through a glass door; complete with en-suite bathroom and dressing room. A long wrap -around verandah runs the length of the house on the northern sidecreating space and breath in the design. 11 The 2 guest studios have been placed at a right angle to the main house, providing a welcoming arrival courtyard to guests and friends alike. Another wrap- around verandah runs the length of the front elevation. Both studios are en-suite with a small sitting area and kitchenette each. The colours and materials were kept very simple. The design is light and airy and the buildings are easy to maintain in the harsh coastal weather. desIgn Namibia December 2015/January 2016
