Gorgeous Family Home in South Africa features Majestic Ocean Views

When it comes to designing a home that is situated near an incredible landscape, it is always a challenge to ensure the home is beautiful in its own right without detracting from its natural surroundings. The family home, located in Pezula Private Estates outside of Knysna in South Africa not only takes on this challenge, but succeeds spectacularly. Architects from Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA), led by Greg Truen and Roxanne Kaye, worked to make sure the space integrated seamlessly with the landscape.
