Stacked Luxury Home Design On Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard

Set in the scenic beauty of Clifton, on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard, this 789 square metre home occupies a position on the hill side. Higher situated residences climb to the right, and lower lying houses to the left, in a neighbourhood shaped by fortress-like boundary walls and building mass. Malan Vorster Architects decided to ring the changes, and placed focus on making this house contribute to the streetscape, a place frequented by joggers, walkers and tourists. Rather than being bound by blank perimeter walls, the design places landscaping level with the sidewalk. Planted gabion walls disguise a large garage, and screen utilities. Components have been organically stacked to break up the building mass.
