An extraordinary site, parallel to Camps Bay Drive, with views of the Apostles along the East, the Atlantic Ocean to the West, and Lion’s Head to the North. The site is narrow with a double storey height restriction and had small residence upon it, which was demolished and at the clients request the architect designed a Balinese Home.
Accommodation includes three bedrooms, each with an en-suite, dressing room and private terrace.
Dark roof trusses are exposed above the triple volume staircase. The contrast between light and dark is a theme throughout the house with light walls contrasting with dark windows and doors; dark timber floors, decking and stairs against the light marble floor; light kitchen counters against dark joinery below; and dark marble floors and niches against the light marble walls in the bathrooms.
Earthy tones of timber, marble, sea grass, bamboo, copper, and brass were used extensively throughout the house together. Subtle, dimmable and concealed lighting further enhance the spaces creating a warm and inviting home with a dual function as an entertainment venue and a warm and inviting private home for the client.
