Striking contemporary property – Head Road 1815, Cape Town

Luxury-Architectural-Design-Cape-Town-04

Cape Town-based architects SAOTA completed this architectural gem in 2007. Head Road 1815 was designed for a young couple, wanting a dynamic and striking home, primarily for themselves, with guest accommodation separated from their own living areas. The luxury property can be found in Fresnaye, Cape Town, South Africa.

The luxury Cape Town 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.

The house includes three-storeys accommodating three en-suite guest rooms 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. The kitchen is positioned 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.

Interior design finishes include a fully imported German kitchen, large format granite floor and wall slabs which are used throughout, frameless glazed balustrades and floor-to-ceiling glazing, as well as various aluminium louvre devices.
