This stunning beach side home couldn’t get any closer to the ocean even if it tried
This stunning beach side home couldn’t get any closer to the ocean even if it tried. Located in Cape Town, South Africa, this house embodies the ultimate in holiday home ideals.
Designed by Elphick Proome Architects, the design of the home came from the client’s brief ‘to create a single space vacation house and fully embrace the remarkable seaside location.’
Elevated above dune on a rugged ocean peninsula, this vacation beach house is a steel framed structure able to open up and connect with its extraordinary site on all sides.
The exo-façade is a bespoke top hinged timber slated screen system and all internal divisions neatly slide away to create a single space in daytime.
A hull shaped roof reveals various views to surrounding mountains while the openness of space yields an uninterrupted view of the ocean. Rendered in modest finishes, this house presents a minimalist solution with tactile materiality in an extraordinary context.
