i.e. Sian Fisher and Kim Benatar of Three14 Architects were asked to help a client find his new dream house. Realising the unique opportunities his current location offered, they persuaded him to let them re-design and rebuild the entire house, unlocking the full potential of the site.

i.e. Stunning views

“The home is located on a steep mountain side with stunning views of the Atlantic seaboard”, says Fisher. “We capitalized on those views with large glass facades, while strong, shielding walls on both flanks ensure maximum privacy from the adjacent houses.”

“Being on the Atlantic coast, Cape Town has a very abrasive climate, which is a nightmare for timber and steel. Hakwood is our go-to flooring product because of its stability and its hard-wearing quality.”

The French White Oak floors with a proprietary colour and textural treatment by Dutch artisans, Hakwood, result in an internal canvas that references the nearby beach sand in the sunlight.

The buildings’ clean lines perfectly frame spectacular views of the beaches below.

The architects selected Auber, from the Sierra Collection by Hakwood to floor the majority of this Clifton residence.
