Karen Mailer designed the house in 1996 for Peter and Joan Moses and received an award of merit from the South African Institute of Architects. Using the slope of the site and split levels, the stated objective of space and light and separation of the private and public domain is achieved. Oregon pine sourced from Rand Mine, where Peter Moses worked as a Chartered Accountant, connects the house to its gold mining roots.
