THE ESSENWOODS
PROGRAM:APARTMENTS
LOCATION: ESSENWOOD, DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA
SIZE: 4000m²

The Berea area has seen a massive uptake of High End apartment blocks, with a preference for the ability to drive one’s vehicles up to your apartment. The proposed site is one of the last large single sites able to accommodate the large footprint required by vehicular ramps.

The aesthetic is clean, simple and strikingly modern. Deep balconies have sliding wooden screens for sun control as well as privacy. All apartments face North.There are 19 apartments, the majority being 180m² 3 bedroom apartments, with larger end units and garden units. We have provided a minimum of 3.5 bays per apartment, with up to 6 bays for the larger penthouse/garden units.

The apartment design avoids the single bedroom to the rear, by placing all 3 bedrooms onto the front balcony straddling the lounge. Units have a dedicated store room to the parking lot, for bicycles, surfboards and bulky storage.
Public facilities include a large club house, with kitchenette, ablutions, prayer rooms, 2 different kids play areas, and a training pool.
