Connected Atlantic Living

On the spectacular shores of the Atlantic overlooking rock pools our client wanted a new home built to “weather like a ship”. The brief was to take into account the harsh climate. This is a key question we work with when designing in Cape Town:  How does one design buildings able to withstand our coastal conditions?

The result is an enduring structure. The aesthetic direction reveals a modern classic with clean lines. It is a reasoned and consistent design. Timeless but warm and neutral finishes allow the home to blend in, rather than be a statement or landmark. It is a balanced and practical family holiday home and accommodates large family gatherings with options for interactions in different areas of varied space and size.

The open plan living dining and kitchen spaces on the main living level live directly onto ocean views. There is a seamless connection of spaces indoor and outdoor throughout the house. The architect designed custom cabinetry combines functional practicality and an integrated neutral aesthetic and compliments the imported Italian kitchen by Assirelli. Roche Bobois furnishing and Mae carpets perfectly complete the picture.

To control the glare of western light off the sea careful planning ensures layers of shutters and blinds don’t interfere with sea views. The rooftop pool epitomises penthouse living. This Cape outdoor living space takes advantage of the gorgeous coastal sun with a purpose designed external weatherproof kitchen and braai.

The importance of the functional design that has been considered throughout the house is most evident in the excavated lower level. The lift and staircase lobby is one of three light wells positioned to introduce natural light and ventilation. As a result, there is an airy feeling and comfortable light levels when moving around the house on all levels. The essence of this Atlantic Seaboard home featured in Habitat “Choice revival” Jan-Feb 2018 is captured in the cover photograph by Adam Letch.
