FUN and GAMES
By @wdesign_architecture_studio .
Throughout the year, most of us dream about the perfect holiday spot – where you can escape from
your daily chores, unwind and have fun with the kids all day long… But why play once a year when
you can do so all year round? .
That same question popped up around the dinner table one evening for this Pretoria family of four
when the vacant stand next door to their home came up for sale. .
Being a sporty family, dreams of
expanding their garden with a tennis court and full length lap pool immediately came to mind. .
As architects we never expected a commission to ‘design a tennis court’ – this has been sorted years
ago and are presumed a standard, but the challenge of incorporating this with an existing sub-urban
house inside a very prescriptive residential estate, which required a minimum 250m² development,
provided the opportunity, in fact required it.., to explore design and construction outside the
conventional ‘rules’ and boundaries of family homes and set the tone for the ‘FUN and GAMES’
theme.” -writing by Architects .
