KS Studios

If you think about architecture for a moment;
 the end product is not the building,
but how the building shapes

Project Simonstown, Cape Town South Africa The double story glass pivot door swings open and clips to the pergola upright giving the bedroom at the back clear sight of the seascape and distant hills. The winter sun streams through the expansive front glazing, while the summer sun gets entangled in the creeper growth over the […]
