House Schoeman Little Walmer Golf Estate - John Rushmere & The Workplace

Citation: The project continues a tradition of projects, its predecessor and deliberate antecedent those of Onion Row, authored by the same architect. A linear double-volume space which is the core of the house is articulated with carefully considered and highly expressive material and structure detailed meticulously, to the point where junctions draw attention to the particular. The project is highly demanding of the care of craftsmanship and this has been brought to the project. While the house appears large, the site is in fact restricted and the space organisation and disposition makes full use of the diagonal views and source of natural light, making for a sense of generosity and liveability. This is a mature work richly deserving of a regional Award for Architecture.
