16@Plover is a beautiful set of self-catering studios in Swakopmund.
After relocating to Swakopmund, the owners desired a new one-bedroom house
which would feature 2 adjacent self-catering studios. Whilst one of the studios could
be joined via an internal door to the main house for private guests, the owners
thought it best not to compromise their own privacy when rooms are let out to
guests. This was overcome by ensuring that the living areas in the main house and
bedroom open up towards the northern side, and by placing the studios at an angle
at the front of the property on the southern side.
The main house consists of, an open plan living/kitchen/dining area with an
adjacent sculler/laundry leading to the double garage; A guest toilet is discreetly
placed around a corner as well.
As both the owners work from home, 2 workspaces were carved out of the main
living area, both being part of the open plan, whilst also providing some much
needed privacy when working.
