Rooiels Beach House is a residential project completed by Elphick Proome Architects.
Rooiels Beach House by Elphick Proome Architects:
“Elevated above dune fynbos on a rugged ocean peninsula, this vacation beach house is a steel framed structure able to be opened to connect with its extraordinary site on all sides. The
exo-façade is a bespoke top hinged timber slated screen system and all internal divisions neatly slide away to create a single space in daytime.
A hull shaped roof reveals various views to surrounding mountains while the openness of space yields an uninterrupted view of the ocean.
Rendered in modest finishes, this house presents a minimalist solution with tactile materiality in an extraordinary context.”
