Ndlopfu – Bush House

 

Following torrential rain, which caused several dams to burst upstream, floodwater rose to the first floor level of the house. As a result the existing deck and interior was completely destroyed. The staircase was replaced in a new location and the building was opened up onto the river bed with large sliding glass doors. In order to comply with the game farms regulations, the deck was reinstated in the previous location with the addition of a ground floor deck with the same footprint.
