Win a weekend at Stand 47

Forward-thinking building solutions company Saint-Gobain is offering two adults and a maximum of two children the chance to spend Friday 20 May and Saturday 21 May in its innovative Stand 47 concept home, which sits on Monaghan Farm near Lanseria airport in Johannesburg. Not only will this family get the chance to experience this advanced abode and all its innovations, but they will also be treated to all meals, wine and refreshments (the prize does not, however, include transport).

Stand 47 arose out of Saint-Gobain’s belief that the materials used to build a home directly affect the comfort, health, happiness and productivity of its inhabitants. This property therefore uses state-of-the-art construction methods and building technologies that help to regulate the internal temperature, absorb pollutants from the air and insulate against noise.


The amazing thermal regulation properties of Saint-Gobain’s products means that Stand 47 is kept cooler in summer and warmer in winter. In fact, the home is built in such a way that residents can wear just a T-shirt inside in the middle of winter, even without electrical heating (you can imagine how much more energy-efficient the building is).

So, the lucky family that wins a stay here can put all the house’s benefits to the test while enjoying a little bit of a break within a contemporary, beautifully designed environment.

The winning family must be available to stay at Stand 47 on 20 and 21 May 2016 and must be willing to have their experience photographed and showcased in the HL magazine and online.
