Set in Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Pantic Architects designed a multi-cluster residential complex which would include one area dedicated to luxury modern townhouses. The brief called for double story town home flats, each with an independant entrance and back garden.


Townhouse Masterplan Concept

Our architectural design concept was rooted in achieving sustainble buildings practices while adapting the townhouse design to the location and specific hot climate and lifestyle of Victoria Falls. The masterplan design developed around the concept of having a central parking area, with walkways immersed in lush vegetation leading to the individual units. This allowed all town homes to be surrounded in greenery and have great views on both sides. In these close quarters, privacy was also of paramount importance, and significant attention was paid to making sure that all occupants had the outmost isolation and seclusion.


Town house design

The actual town house design envisages living areas downstairs, with the kitchen, dining and living rooms all connected and mostly open plan facing outwards onto the shaded veranda and private garden. The first floor rooms are all bedrooms and bathrooms creating a peacefull night area. The master bedroom also has a balcony with greenery providing a visual and thermal filter to the outside and enriching the internal space.


Passive climatic control

Consideration was given to cooling through cross ventilation, adequate thermal insulation in the roof and shading of windows from direct sunlight. All rooms have large openings for light and ventilation, and special attention was given to various modalities of window opening for day and night use. The modern townhouse design proposed should bring new concepts and elements to the local architectural selection and will be welcome homes for the new owners.
