Architectural intelligence blends with modern sensibilities to create a lasting impression in this resolutely modern house. With the benefit of an Architect and an Artist, this creative couple’s home is a triumph of functionality and style.  Each room relates to the next with a flow of light, space and bespoke cabinetry. While there are splashes of colour, earthy tones are dominant throughout the house as well as floor to ceiling glass, creating a character of easy, airy sophistication.  Situated in an undeniably green lung only minutes away from walks in Newlands Forest and within close proximity to SACS and Westerford schools as well as the University of Cape Town.
