Westcliff Pavillion Johannesburg, South Africa

The cottage at 28A Pallinghurst is a steel-framed pavilion structure located in Johannesburg, South Africa. This 2 bedroom dwelling, nestled away in its wooded surroundings, is positioned just before the inception of a major sheer face of the Westcliff Ridge. Designed by Gass Architecture Studios.

the building is a private, tranquil hiding place in the trees juxtaposed with a feeling of floating above the ridge combined with magnificent views of Johannesburg. The company employed the use of natural materials with the steel frame structure allowing light to permeate the frame.

Beautiful house and great to see more structures like these in Africa, hopefully we will see more like these in other parts of the continent in coming years.
