We are inspired and a little in awe of The Observatory Villa set in the heart of the Waterberg mountains at the Leobo Private Reserve. The observatory and surrounding African villa, designed by architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, are a breathtaking reminder of how locally inspired designs can be paired with the latest technological innovations to create a space that is rooted in the future while still staying true to its past and the language of its environment. It’s the perfect space to lie back, admire the wonder of the African sky and imagine a universe much bigger than ours.
