House at Johannesdal is located in a dramatic rural setting. Its white stereotomic form is etched against the inconsistent ruggedness of the surrounding mountains.
The gallery-like internal volumes are of varied size and carved from a heavy, pure white mass made of humble brick. The ensemble creates opportunities for suspense, unexpected views and varied use of natural light.
