With the sun shining strong in South Africa, the House Liebmann is designed to ensure the residences don't constantly overheat. Action was taken by the firm Daffonchio + Associates to use precise angles that would keep the sun's rays at bay throughout the day.

Another way that was used to control the heat was the thickness of the walls. Each slab is quite broad, which helps to keep in the coolness generated by the cooling system inside the abode. This way the owners can enjoy the views from the comfort of their home and not be concerned over temperatures becoming unbearable.
