Benguela Cove House with Panoramic Views of The Landscape by SAOTA




Benguela Cove House in Overberg, designed by SAOTA, offers very glorious views. Perched just above the seashore of Benguela Cove Wine Estate in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, the home looks out over the Botrivier Lagoon and Overberg Mountains. Indeed, every material, inside and out, pays homage to natural resources. Also, it accented with subdued materials including steel and corrugated aluminum. The cerulean skies and azure water of the cove make the timber exterior and aluminum roof pop against the deep green landscape.

The owner’s vision for a comfortable retreat for his children coupled with liveable outdoor spaces for entertaining was developed into a “C” shaped plan whose wings serve to maximise outlook, frame views and create a large sheltered courtyard. Certainly, this distinctive sheltering shape is again expressed in the wrapped floor-wall-roof profile of the three wings which, assembled together one above the other, track the site as it slopes towards the water. Obviously, the interior design by ARRCC captures the minimalist sensibility of the architecture.

Relaxation is the theme of the living room. A colossal concrete hearth wall surrounds the fireplace and oversized picture window, and finely crafted pre-weathered steel cloaks the flues. Al fresco dining and socializing take place in an outdoor dining and kitchen area with an inviting and spacious sun deck. A staircase with glass railing and a CNC-cut timber screen background adds yet another tactile touch to the decor.

Indeed, huge blocks of granite flank the kitchen island and contrast with the brilliantly polished countertop. Then, making it the focal point of the room. Besides, the light wood cabinets soften the kitchen, which overlooks the flowing design of the lounge and dining areas. Also, the sweeping views go on, as does the theme of wood slats on the ceiling and granite floors.

The bedroom wing on the first floor sits atop the home’s living areas. Especially, each room has a panoramic view of the cove and adjoining greenery. The bathtub in the master bathroom has a window with a clear view of the mountains and cove. Besides, the landing below overlooks a courtyard before you step inside the living quarters.

The Benguela Cove Gallery:

Text by the Architects: Nature pervades the house –the seamless flow of internal floors and ceilings out into external living spaces is mirrored by the fynbos planting which stalks the edges of the internal envelope, enfolds the terraces and decks and seeps into the garden courtyard. The setting for this house within Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate, on the Botrivier Lagoon south-east of Cape Town is spectacular – a slope of indigenous fynbos vegetation runs into the broad waters of a tidal estuary bordered by mountains. The considered architectural design by SAOTA and Interiors by ARRCC of this holiday house in negotiate the inherent paradox of such exposure to nature – how to shackle the extreme elements – sun, salt, rain and, in particular, high winds – whilst allowing the exceptional natural beauty of the site to pervade every space.
