Fabulous House with a Privileged Natural Environment of Lakes and Mountains

By • Jun 7, 2018

This fabulous house with open spaces and plenty of natural light is located on the banks of the Buffels River, near its mouth in Pringle Bay, a small coastal town less than 100 km from Cape Town, South Africa.

Roofed terrace with wicker furniture

It was designed in 2015 by a team of architects comprised by Philip Olmesdahl, Riaz Ebrahim, Nasreen Larney & Werner Lotz from the prestigious firm SAOTA, and its interior design was done by the firm ARRCC.

The architecture is clean and robust. The materials are resistant to the harsh coastal climate and the winds that periodically sweep the bay. The planning of this family vacation home is complex and sophisticated.

The individual open-plan rooms flow perfectly, forming an extended living area and central space. The cozy kitchen and living room is in the center, with a sofa in the kitchen large enough to seat the whole family. The living rooms have a direct relationship and the flow between these spaces adds a unique dynamic to the house.

Five years of living on the property before construction presented ideas about the complexities of the site, giving them the opportunity to study and carefully consider the relationship of the house with the sun on the road.
