Cape Dream House
Located on two plots on the prestigious Erinvale Golf Estate, taken residence along the lake, the Cape Dream home overlooks it and invites its life inside.
Embracing to breathtaking views of the Hottentot Holland Mountains, the Helderberg Mountain and False Bay, which can be enjoyed from all rooms. It clearly needed to mark its territory by inviting in these spectacular views.
So the idea was born to create an object that would rise out of the existing structure and venture into the lake and mountain like a livable structure.
The volumetry of this object is pure and simple, consisting of a horizontal plane and mirrored walls, with endless personalized detail work to all spaces internally and externally; from audio rooms, medieval wine and champagne cellars with ceiling frescos, studies layouts to wall units, concrete fireplaces, dropped floating ceilings, designer lighting, indoor planters and pool, waterfalls, design retreat space, concrete wall designs, in and out recesses, angled walls, all to remind us that nothing in nature is straight. Inside, the essence is smoother, warm, and midway between honey and caramel. It is an urbane interior seeking to be hospitable and optimistic.
Music present while personalizing it; Back Street boys, Jason Mraz, Tracy Chapman, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong
