The Luxury Spa House, South Africa
Designed by Cape Town-based architects, Metropolis Design, this stunning contemporary property was completed in 2011 in Hout Bay, a coastal town of Cape Town, South Africa.
The Spa House is a modern luxury home set on the mountainside on the urban edge of Hout Bay, overlooking the bay and harbour, surrounded by weathered sandstone formative.
The primary design intention of this contemporary property was to integrate the building with the powerful landscape and to derive its poetics from the qualities of its surroundings. The Spa House is separated from the principal residence by a berm, and is connected to it by foot paths.
According to the architects the brief called for a place of entertainment and relaxation both for the client and his guests, who would also be accommodated there. The contemporary property incorporates swimming pools, guest accommodation, spa facilities and general living and poolside areas. The house is conceived of as a hovering set of elements, suspended over a large waterscape, which forms an extended terrace on the mountainside. We think it looks stunning.
