"De-fleshed fish bones protruding from the dunes"
Our client commissioned us to create a relaxed, informal and private holiday retreat for them, their extended families and friends. A house where they could enjoy and be one with nature and the sea. The site is in Boggoms Bay: a remote Western Cape South African seaside village. It is situated on the edge of the built-up area abutting a nature reserve with its dunes covered with wind sculpted vegetation. The site allows for complete privacy and also have breath-taking views over the bay and the dunes. Although the site is small, the client's accommodation requirements were extensive, we therefore developed the stand to its maximum and borrowed visually from the reserve to create a sense of space.
