Forest View Apartments in South Africa by Bloc Architects exemplifies the Afro-Modernist Aesthetic

Located in Elaleni, the Forest View Apartments are designed to make the most of the beauty of the forest and echo the vast spacious outdoors.

Careful consideration was taken for each unit to take full advantage of the natural light and the breath-taking views over the forest canopy. The buildings are executed in a natural palette of timber, glass and concrete with the surrounding natural vegetation as the fourth component. Sloping down towards the Fig forest, each of the 45 apartments enjoy full-height glazing used to enhance the sunshine, whilst glass balustrades recede into the backdrop presenting seamless views of the outside world.

These 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom homes encourage open plan living, and the interiors are a place of light and space boasting superior finishes. The large verandah provides a shelter from the elements whilst still inviting the outside world in. Whether one chooses a quiet moment of solitude or to share their space with friends and family, the spacious verandah provides the perfect opportunity.
