Contemporary villa as object in landscape

By ensuring that all parts of the house are spatially and visually inter-connected, including all outdoor living areas and courtyards, contact is maintained between all parts of the house, so that no area becomes isolated.

The house is, however, protected from the street and neighbours, whilst views towards the ocean, and back to Signal Hill and Lion’s Head are maintained and celebrated, without compromising on the need for security and privacy.
