The Village is an upmarket residential development designed by dhk architects for the Eye of Africa Golf Estate in Eikenhof, south of Johannesburg.
The development comprises 12 apartment blocks, with 8 units in each block. The two storey buildings combine 2-bedroom apartments of approximately 83 sqm and 3-bedroom units of around 139 sqm.
The development is located on a 2 hectare site set within the Eye of Africa Golf Estate, surrounded by scenic landscape. All of the units are north facing (or north west facing) and enjoy generous balconies to take in the sun and views towards the surrounding estate, and the ground floor units have private gardens.
The architecture is understated, with the building height kept to two storeys to sit comfortably within the landscape, creating an intimate village feel. The materials palette has been selected to complement the surrounding natural environment, and combines simple painted plaster with locally sourced natural stone.
The apartment layouts are perfect for entertaining with open plan kitchen, living and dining areas, leading onto the balconies. The master bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, with an additional guest bathroom.
