House Schindler in Pezula Private Estate, Knysna, was completed towards the end of 2012. The house is positioned to take advantage of the beautiful forest views to the north; the main living area - with clerestorey lighting - looks toward the forest through a covered patio and pool deck. Energy efficiency was paramount to the owners; double-glazing has been used, eaves shading devices and shutters control sunlight, floors have hydrothermal heating, solar water heating and photovoltaics supplement supply rendered more efficient by heat pumps.
