Illovo Project – in a league of its own…

An intrinsic part of the building’s design is the engineered timber, Lunawood Thermowood, which embraces the structure with cladding and decking.

Lunawood’s characteristics are in line with the athletic theme of this home, that being: agility, stamina, and strength.

Extracted from Scandinavian countries, this Spruce and Pine timber, delivers aesthetic value with its butterfly-shaped knots and heady outdoor scent. The sheer beauty of the cladding, running vertically over the exterior, makes an architectural statement that is a connection to nature and an urban space.

Located in Sandton, Johannesburg, this private home designed by Urbanstone Architecture,  demonstrates an ingenious utilisation of space, to create a self-contained sporting arena. It invites one to be part of the action, from the football field built on the roof, to the training pool and the tennis court on the side of the house. An additional treat is the view from the second-floor windows, which has a direct view of The Wanderers Golf Club.

Lunawood is a responsible choice. It reduces the carbon footprint and paves the way for sustainable future generations.

Universal Plywood is the sole distributor of Lunawood. For further information and advice from our informed staff, contact us. There are warehouses in Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Ballito and Durban.
