A strong love for color and the appreciation for the multitude and diversity of materials is what inspired the unique design of this family home in the suburbs of Cape Town. It was a project developed by ARRCC and it’s a perfect blend between a modern exterior and a vibrant and exciting interior. An open and spacious entrance hall ensures a smooth transition between the indoor and outdoor and introduces you into a welcoming living area furnished with brightly-colored, geometric pieces complemented by eye-catching artwork.
The house enjoys a strong and organic connection to the outdoors which is visible on all sides
An exterior dining area and an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven and a fireplace create a pleasant entertainment area for those moments when you want to enjoy the fresh and beautiful weather but still be close to the house.
