This is a 395 square meter house in the middle row of the Waters Edge Estate, Big Bay. Strict architectural guidelines determine the architectural concept. Adjoining 8m high properties on either side of the site result in corridor views of the sea.
In order to maximize the view, the house is built over 2 levels with open plan living at first floor and makes extensive use of the roof space. A bespoke external spiral staircase connects the external entertainment areas of both levels with an observation deck on the main roof, extending views from Robben Island to Table Mountain.
Rational, simple forms create a ‘modernist’ aesthetic to the exterior, while off shutter concrete finishes, exposed brickwork walls, granite floor tiles and natural oak floors offset with a grey and black palette create a modern ‘industrial’ feel to the interior.
