Nestled in the side of Lion's Head, overlooking the idyllic blue waters of Cape Town's Bantry Bay, you'll find this spectacular modern house by SAOTA
. The architects had there marching orders, the client desired a showpiece yet wanted a sanctuary that enhanced their family lifestyle. The result couldn't have been more spot on. While the house is dynamically showy in all the right places, it has a softer, less boastful side in its low key interior spaces. Natural and organic materials can be found throughout the home, creating a rich textural appeal among a minimalist interior design. Expanses of concrete were used both inside and out, but are naturally softened and warmed by rich woods and finishes and natural light flooding Â through expansive glass ceilings and walls. Â This is certainly a modern house we could feel right at home in, how about you?
