The term “peace” could easily have found its origin between the Outeniqua forest and the long open Atlantic ocean, both of which are an integral part of this holiday home. An elegantly crafted box floats on top of tree tops towards the north and sensitively touches the sand dune on the south.
A single level building with a large open living / dining area separates the private en-suite guest rooms to the east and the main bedroom suite to the west. All rooms capture nature’s elements and reminds of a contemporary Knysna log cabin, with engineered wood fitted to the majority of the interior.the slow life enters upon a sea breeze through large sliding doors from the South and retires on an Outenique hill to the North. These large sliding glass and shutter panels regulates light and ventilation, but simultaneously extends the interior to the exterior. finishes are simple, natural and in touch with this sea town’s context.
The core of this holiday home will always be in harmony with nature.
