The customers asked for a 6-bedroomed family home with downplayed polish and calm glory, indoor/open air living spaces and continuous perspectives, with a “lived-in shoreline house” feel.


The shoreline front site falls inside of an unblemished and special environment, settled at the foot of the Robberg. With direct access to a piece of unspoiled shoreline, it is described by its moving hills and the thick indigenous vegetation of phenomenal assortment, including a well set up Milkwood shrubbery. The site is liable to hot summers and direct winters, with a cooling on-shore breeze, from the North East. Exploiting the extensive ridge over most of the site, the perspectives were amplified by raising the living levels to above characteristic ground level, terracing manufactured structures down the rise.


The outline consolidates expansive coated regions and broad utilization of open air spaces, with every part of the house having a porch or deck. The straight open arrangement sythesis of the inside spaces permits sees from each room. To exploit the and far off mountain sees, while giving security from the extremes of atmosphere, the living spaces were planned with South West/North East introductions. Molded rectangular structures, straight components, substantial regions of flat coating, timber cladding and far reaching outside patios are the essential components of the configuration. Remotely the characteristic fynbos was raised to the house accomplishing an inclination that the house is set in nature and does not bother the normal magnificence.


The basic decision of materials supplements the sculptural type of the house. The ground surface is of huge arrangement cowhide complete Neo Sardo Granite all through the house, close by painted dividers and roofs. The primary nonpartisan components are supplemented by the characteristic timber shades, screens and pergola. These will develop so as to a silver-dim shading. Every lavatory is described by dividers clad in rock to coordinate the floors, frameless glass shower walled in areas and white Corian vanities. The main room is done with white oiled Oak flooring with highlight rock, binds it back to whatever remains of the house. The way to this retreat is its effortlessness as far as the relationship between spaces. Its floor arrangement is organized, scanty and uncluttered.
