Forestviews - Secure residential estate in La Lucia, KwaZulu Natal.
The Executive is an exclusive gated estate comprising of 56 freestanding residential units and 64 apartments. The vision is of a prestigious, contemporary hilltop development that will be the ultimate residential estate in Durban.
Set in lush subtropical vegetation, the architecture is modern, featuring hanging and cantilevered decks, terraces and aluminium screen elements to create the effect of a building structure that floats on the hillside. It is a modern interpretation of the organic principals demonstrated by Frank Lloyd Wright at the Falling Water Residence (1973).
To enhance the modern executive lifestyle the entrance and road landscapes are structured, forming a disciplined, rhythmic drive along the Central Ridge Road. Residents and visitors approach homes through a series of courtyards that transform an everyday drive into an enjoyable experience.
