Modern Head 1815 House by SAOTANovember 28th, 2013 - Posted in Architecture
Situated in dramatic sloping site in Cape Town, this stunning house was designed by SAOTA, an well known architecture firm in South Africa. The site falls very steeply and due to the high elevation of the road and the restrictions on the building form, the house is raised above the property on high columns.
Description from Architects:
“The house includes three storeys accommodating three en-suite guest suites on the ground floor, with a plant area and a staff flatlet at the rear. The first floor is the main living level, with a large living room and dining room opening to a covered and uncovered pool terrace. The kitchen is positioned to enjoy views through the glass roof towards Lion’s Head. The entrance hall is accessed by gentle steps from Head Road preceded by a glass-roofed external lobby space. The second floor accommodates the master bedroom, dressing room and a light-filled en-suite with views over the pool below. Internal finishes include a fully imported German kitchen, large format granite floor and wall slabs which are used throughout, frameless glazed balustrades and floor-to-ceiling glazing, as well as various aluminium louvre devices.”
