Knowing exactly what they were looking for meant that these home owners were already a step ahead of the game. After living in the Ballito area for a number of years, there was no doubt in their minds that this was the location for their dream home. Travelling and working extensively throughout Africa and the Caribbean, these residents gleaned much insight into the design, decor, and specific architecture that they wanted for their unique home, in particular how to maximise the sea views from almost every area of the home.
The brief for this home was fairly simple: an open-plan home with a seamless flow and design between the public spaces of the interior. “The brief to the architect was to create a space that has a nice flow to it – with minimal ‘constraining’ walls,” the residents explain.
Spacious, open-plan living spaces, double volume areas and inviting interiors – these were the aspects that attracted the owners to this house, inspiring them to make it their ideal home. It was also important to them that this dwelling had sufficient room to add on a fully-functional home office.
