Hot summers, winds and winter rains are no match for this contemporary beach house; it’s been designed by Johannesburg architect Foord Ceronio to make the best of everything nature throws at it. Not only is the multi-level design stylish, but it’s practical too: low-maintenance materials have been used and provisions have been made for the future use of renewable energy sources such as solar water heating and wind-powered battery charging for emergency lighting.
