House Reynolds is in Simola Golf & Country Estate, Knysna - a 650sq.m home in which the owners can take refuge from busy city life. The steep site falls towards the the Knysna River; from the living areas, one's eye is drawn towards the river, overlooking the deck and swimming pool. Sliding doors disappear into cavities to integrate living areas and outside spaces; a feature pool adjacent to the dining area cools the air that is drawn through. A functional kitchen with cupboards crafted from american walnut is brought into a more direct relationship with dining and patio areas when the wide doors slide away.
