Situated in the outskirts of Cape Town in South Africa the residence has been designed to get a wonderful view of the mesmerizing sea and the beautiful mountains. The house built as a sequence of the nearby Nettleton 195 gets its design from Cape Town based studio SAOTA aka Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.
The situated in the historic in South Africa is a remodeled structure of an old 1950s residence.It’s the work of studio Nico Van Der Meulen Architects who have taken utmost care in making this design perfect and complete — making it one of the major attractions of the whole area.
The Nettleton 199 project partner Greg Truen states the task was to create a building which would give a maximum view of the sea and to create a garden beside the mountain located near the site. They also wanted minimal exposure to the neighboring buildings. The residence overlooks the Atlantic Ocean to the west and its design gives prime-most importance to privacy such that it offers least vision to neighboring houses.
By choosing a color palette that would compliment the surroundings, the architects dissolved the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and prolonged the dynamic coastline inside. An open floor plan allowed the creation of an L-shaped cooking/living/entertaining zone open to the outside deck and swimming pool. And also check out the Bloom Chair by Kenneth Cobonpuere featured a while back on Decoist – it looks amazing in this house!
The from the Australian designers Robinson Architects seems to the kind of house that proves just how great you can use glass steel and wood when decorating your interior. This two storey modern house is located on Sunshine Coast near Queensland and was meant for a retired couple but to be honest I could see myself or any other young fellows living in there just as great.
