Francois Marais Architects design magnificent House Lourens

Why settle for an ordinary home when you could pick an ultra modern dream house? Something with a continuous flow of space from interior to exterior, and simply breathtaking in appearance. A house with articulated vertical and horizontal planes, and solid elements that bind the design as a whole. Something that just looks incredible!

That is exactly what the owners of House Lourens did with their new home in Ebotse Golf and Country Estate. This is South Africa’s fastest growing residential estate, and has been developed around the picturesque Rynfield Dam – which House Lourens overlooks!

This estate takes advantage of its natural environment – creating a safe haven for families to enjoy recreational activities like boating, fishing, hiking, jogging, cycling, tennis and much more. House Lourens opens up to beautiful green spaces like the fabulous Ebotse Links. This golf course is currently ranked number 37 by Golf Digest South Africa, and was built to US PGA specifications. A golfer’s paradise!

Ground floor

A completely open plan design, offering comfortable living spaces that open up to an inviting patio.

First floor

The beautifully designed curved steel staircase forms part of the aesthetic of the front façade, but thanks to the double volume design, there’s still a valuable spatial connection with the ground floor.

Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. And when the work out has finished in the gym, the jacuzzi on the balcony is perfect for relaxing and watching the birds fly over the Rynfield Dam.


This part of House Lourens was creatively designed as a large entertainment area – complete with a cinema! The saloon-style bar overlooks the swimming pool, which makes this the perfect spot for entertaining guests during the warm South African summer months.
