Head 1818 house designed by SAOTA, located in Cape Town, South Africa is a four-bedroom home for their young family. The owner needs a design that has to encapsulate all the qualities of luxury open-plan living and also providing a homely environment. The result is a house with bold contemporary lines and extended planes in its language.
The site of this house is practical that has steepness and town planning restrictions which become key initial drivers in determining the parameters available for the design. The property has a narrow proportion that also needs careful consideration of bedroom and privacy. There is also an effort that puts into the capitalizing on views to the rear onto Lions Head across Atlantic Seaboard and Sea Point.
Between the living and bedroom, there is a clear vertical distinction. This young family has young children too so the bedrooms need to be in close proximity to each other and the parents to create a securable ‘family only’ portion of the home. The upper most level houses a master bedroom with a generous open-plan space inclusive of a dressing area and en suite bathroom. In addition to this, the living areas are designed and arranged to allow a good connection to the pool, covered terrace, and garden.
