Stunning Head 1815 House designed by SAOTA in Cape Town, South Africa, whose location allows for views of the Atlantic Ocean, the nearby town of Fresnaye and the Lion’s Head Mountain. The home is perched high atop a hill, and has stunning views of the ocean. Due to the steep grade and local building restrictions, this stunning Head 1815 house is raised upon stilts rather than embedded into the hillside.

The house has three storeys, includes three en-suite guest suites on the ground floor, with a plant area and a staff flatlet at the rear. The first floor is the main living level, with a large living room and dining room opening to a covered and uncovered pool terrace. In addition to this, the kitchen helps to enjoy views through the glass roof towards Lion’s Head. The entrance hall is accessed by gentle steps from Head Road preceded by a glass-roofed external lobby space. The second floor accommodates the master bedroom, dressing room and a light-filled en-suite with views over the pool below. Surely, it is a great home for the young people, who want a dynamic and striking home with guest accommodation separated from their own living areas.

Text by the Architects: The clients, a young couple, wanted a dynamic and striking home, primarily for themselves, with guest accommodation separated from their own living areas. The property views towards the north and west over Fresnaye as well as at the rear of the site. The site falls very steeply and due to the high elevation of the road and the restrictions on the building form, the house is raised above the property on high columns.
