Capolavoro Estate, Kylemore
A 204 square metre site and strict estate guidelines required creative design solutions. The open-plan lay-out, ample natural daylight through cleverly placed windows and the use of double-volume areas give an illusion of space far beyond the 160sqm size. The first floor floats above the living/dining area like a tree house connecting the home on all levels. Service areas placed on the west protect the house against the harsh afternoon sun while the living areas and bedrooms open up to the magical views of the Drakenstein mountains that hover over the estate.
