The reserve house is a piece of architecture that plays duality in its design.
Propped up in Forestwood on the Dolphin coast, the house rises behind an indigenous dune forest enclave to peer across the landscape and still "reserve" its inner spaces to close up encounters.
It is a house that does well to enunciate its materials in aluminium and timber details that at first glance appear eclectic but grow seamlessly onto you as a tropical modern piece of composition.
The expansive form perhaps tries to capture the landscape, take it in.
The architects, Metropole, known for eclectic fusion of various styles into a modern approach have woven up futurist and tropical elements into a house that sets into the landscape and props up where necessary.
It is a house full of energy, the elements are in motion, the colors vibrant and the atmosphere comes on with the evening breeze.
