This private residence in the coastal town of Yzerfontein, West Coast, harnesses an essence of inviting the outdoors in. Spacious living volumes with large windows draw the neighbouring farmland inside, and allows viewing of the local birdlife in the natural conservancy that is the main vista. To encourage socialising and family unity, the living spaces have high ceilings and take generous portions of floor space, with bedrooms becoming smaller sleeping pods. A central double sided fireplace that serves both the living and dining rooms provides visual splendor and warmth.
The home is designed in a modern style that uses natural materials of timber, concrete and marble. Custom joinery by skilled craftsmen provides absolute functionality and clean lines that appeal to the look as a whole. The decor used is to a modern country taste and reflects the owners' penchant of an eclectic style centered around the collection of the old and new.
