Cascades Waterfall Residential Estate
Barbeque Downs, Midrand
Discover the beauty of the Gatehouse, Lifestyle Center, and apartments of a stunning 137-unit residential estate. This development features a diverse range of double-story homes and 4-story apartment blocks, each showcasing 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom designs and 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartments.
Crafted with low-maintenance materials like face brick and steel sheeting, the design showcases a unique texture with bullnose special bricks woven into the facades and boundary walls. The steel sheeting used for the roofs extends vertically down the facades, accentuating the glazing with a deep window reveal detail. The gatehouse roof, made from a combination of Chromadek and polycarbonate sheeting, allows ample natural light to enter the exit lane where visitors sign out.
The roof structure is a simple yet elegant display of exposed steel trusses with rectangular hollow section steel purlins, which also double as louvers below the polycarbonate sheeting. The guardhouse is framed by a light-painted, plastered box that creates a deep overhang for an added shade over the sliding windows.
