This next house is a modern, chic place designed by SAOTA. Located in Cape Town, South Africa, this amazing house was designed for a young family who wanted to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle offered by the site.
The existing house wasn’t utilizing the site’s great features so the architects used every possible area of the plot, ensuring privacy at the same time. The project was a difficult and ambitious one due to the site, the budget restrictions and the choice of using a part of the existing building. Another huge challenge was to choose a part of the original house that was still legal, because the Zonning Scheme on which it was built changed.
The architects designed an open floor plan where you can enjoy the kitchen, the living and dining rooms in one single space. These areas benefit from all day sunlight due to the huge windows, and framed views of the sea. Moreover the clients can entertain family and friends in their entertainment space or by the pool enjoying a cocktail on the terrace.
The house also accommodates the main bedrooms with 2 en-suite children’s bedrooms, a small children’s lounge, a guest room, staff area and a private library. Furthermore, the house has a soft, neutral palette that creates the feeling of a light, airy space.
All in all, this stunning house is everything you could dream of. It is modern, sleek and has gorgeous views of Bantry Bay. Neat!
