From the architect. Designed for a young kinsfolk in the suburban Atlantic of Rondebosch, Cape Town, this concern sits on an elongated place with views towards Devil’s Peak and The Back Table, which is the south-eastern bounds of the iconic Table Mountain. The client’s short titled for a contemporary, unstoppered organisation bag that provides a easygoing style and takes advantage of the place and its views.



The resultant modify is a bottom white incase containing the room accommodation on the first floor, hovering over the experience spaces on the connector floorbelow. This incase was articulated with strategic openings increasing views and danger to light, with a bicentric curtilage carved discover conterminous to the kitchen and dining room to create a focal point. The mass of the floating incase is busted downbound on the street façade with a hammy concealment wall which creates an open-air wage for the temporary aerofoil of the house. The concealment offers concealment from the street patch allowing views and reddened to permeate and is constructed from standard pre-cast objective wind blocks reminiscent of a departed era.



The unstoppered organisation experience spaces on the connector story move discover onto the curtilage and wage to the North, with the garden and elevation views to the west. A hand designated tree was planted in the curtilage as a focal surroundings to wage a shaded garden Atlantic that fills the conterminous spaces with patterned light. The tree acts as a uncolored concealment to the candid north reddened and its canopy creates concealment for the first story from neighbours.



The steel and tone support connects the two levels and arrives in a super unstoppered organisation programme expanse on the first story which separates the temporary aerofoil from the master flat and maintains connections to the curtilage and tree below. Circulation spaces were minimised and were all unreal with outside views on axis.



A ultimate reach of materials allows space, reddened and volume to take alternative over nonfunctional finishes and elaboration. The connector story has a large lustrous objective story closing throughout which blurs the bounds between interior and outdoor experience capitalising on the South African climate. Upstairs, solid hardwood tone floorboards and uncolored limestone tiles create heat and texture for the more hint spaces of this home. Rough off-shutter objective elements were utilised on the street bounds and the curtilage façade accentuating the white incase through textural contrast.



This light-filled home, complete on instance and within budget, successfully translates the clients short and is a carefully considered response to the climatic and contextual conditions of the site. The client’s willingness for a bold conceptual design has resulted in a strong equal modify exceptional to Rondebosch. This esthetical challenges the surrounding, traditional urban fabric and encourages a firm move to residential structure in this suburb.
