A very active local businessman approached us with a desire to create a home that would give the ability to thoroughly enjoy this serene landscape. Although still living and working in Cape Town, the house would serve as their getaway home for now to eventually become their retirement home. They wanted to maximize the beautiful northern view across the Knysna lagoon with the capability to welcome frequent visiting family and friends.
The challenges of the odd shaped site were the slight slope, and the potential for future development to partially ruin the fantastic view. Straightforward forms, extensive transparency, and a variety of exterior materials work to form a beautiful home that is also very open and spacious inside.
