Silverhurst in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: SAOTA 

This home is a contemporary reboot of the more classical architectural styles, surrounding it in one of Cape Town’s exclusive gated estates in the winelands suburb of Constantia. Set in a tailored parkland garden, the facade is Georgian inspired but the modern aspect of the look is driven by a dynamic of recessed and projecting panels and cubes that create courtyards and terraces that articulate and add interest to what is a highly organised shell. Inside, it’s no less organised but it becomes a story of sculpted space and secret luxury. VIVID Architects prepared the initial concept. SAOTA and ARRCC were then appointed to refine & develop the design and oversee the project to completion.

Beachyhead in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa by SAOTA

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: SAOTA

“The clients approached SAOTA to design a family holiday home that responded to the site, especially the views. They wanted a relaxing, yet elegant home that would be comfortable when entertaining many guests whilst also feeling intimate and cosy when it’s only one or two of them in the house,” said director and project leader Phillippe Fouché.  Other factors that drove the conceptual organisation of the building were the views, sunlight, prevailing wind direction and the zoning parameters.
