Under construction, is a 1000 square meter house in the Aegean Heights Estate, situated on the slopes of the Langebaan Lagoon. Estate guidelines dictate a ‘greek island’ aesthetic, while the design relies on classic design principles of order and proportion.
The house is designed over 2 erven, with the possibility to subdivide as two individual houses at a later stage. The house is entered off the main street at first floor level with informal and formal open plan living areas arranged around a courtyard, complete with undercover outdoor entertainments areas, jacuzzi and swimming pool. This arrangement allows for the design to capitalise on the views, north orientation and provide shelter from prevailing gale force winds. The ordered structure creates the opportunity for a series of vaulted exposed brick roofs to the formal and informal living areas. This strong design element is complemented with vaulted arches at ground floor. The ground floor comprises eleven en suite bedrooms and all rooms have been orientated to capitalise on views.
