House Matshiya Borrowdale

This is a spectacular single story house built on a steep sloping ground overlooking magnificent views to the eastern side. The house contains a lot of structural retaining walls as high as 4,5m. In order to reduce costs, the property was built with split levels matching the ground terrain. The retaining walls were designed as reinforced brick masonry walls making them extremely cheaper than if they were constructed as reinforced concrete walls. Stunning views of an immaculate landscaping outside captures the eye of any visitor or by-passer. The method of earth retaining brick walls was also employed following the ground terrain for the landscaping.
