Description from SAOTA
“The beach-front web site falls within a pristine and unique environment, nestled at the foot of the Robberg. With direct access to a strip of idyllic beach, it is characterized by its rolling dunes and the dense indigenous vegetation of extraordinary selection, which includes a properly establish Milkwood thicket. The internet site is topic to hot summers and moderate winters, with a cooling on-shore breeze, from the North East.
Taking benefit of the huge dune across the majority of the website, the views had been maximised by elevating the living levels to above organic ground level, terracing built types down the dune. To take benefit of the sea and distant mountain views, while delivering protection from the extremes of climate, the living spaces were designed with South West/North East orientations. Sculptured rectangular forms, linear elements, massive locations of horizontal glazing, timber cladding and expansive external terraces are the principal components of the design and style.
Externally the organic fynbos was brought up to the house attaining a feeling that the home is set in nature and does not disturb the organic beauty. The straightforward choice of materials complements the sculptural kind of the residence. The flooring is of big format leather finish Neo Sardo Granite throughout the house, alongside painted walls and ceilings. The principal neutral elements are complemented by the natural timber shutters, screens and pergola. These will mature in time to a silver-grey colour. Every single bathroom is characterised by walls clad in granite to match the floors, frameless glass shower enclosures and white Corian vanities. The master bedroom is finished with white oiled Oak flooring with function granite, tying it back to the rest of the house.”
