House Mi

 

NOTABLE FEATURES / COMMENTS

This house is situated in Camps Bay with magnificent views of the Atlantic ocean, Lions Head and The Twelve apostles. Our client approached us to convert a modest single storey house into a double storey modern contemporary home that would provide shelter from the South Easter, while taking advantage of the views and providing a layout which is conducive to an indoor / outdoor befitting the location and site.

Being an avid cook, the client wanted the kitchen to be located at the centre of the house.
We planned a double volume over the kitchen area so that it is visible from both upstairs and downstairs lounge areas, linking the two spaces, both visually and spatially. The entire upstairs floor area is finished in rich coloured bamboo flooring, adding colour and warmth to the house, while the downstairs areas have been finished  in porcelain tiles for easy living, and flow to the external covered terrace and pool. The house sports a long rim flow swimming pool helping to block out the roof of the house in front, while setting the vibe for a continual water view from the pool out over the ocean.
