HOUTHU I S I E Psychiatrist Dr. Pieter Cilliers restored Houthuisie, his family holiday wooden cottage, in a most sensitive and sustainable way. Located in Robberg on the Eastern Cape Coast of South Africa – an area known for ostentacious rather than subtle design – Houthuisie stands as a statement in humility of man’s relationship to his habitat. By using materials like recycled timber for structures and furniture, Cilliers created – not in spite of but probably because he did not use a profesional architect – a home with intrtegrity, warmth and a stamp-size carbon footprint.
