House Venter / Hermanus



Western Cape

Project Description

This astounding property, located close to Fetherbrook nature reserve, is owned by a local retired couple. The nature of the brief was to create a home that would be low maintenance and meet the strict requirements of the aesthetic guidelines.

Astonishing views from the stand inspired the orientation of the living spaces.  The main bedroom is orientated to open up onto the nearby lake and the study looks out onto the mountain. Attention was given to fine detail as special corner windows were introduced to enhance views to the surrounding landscape. Movement between open spaces embraces this vast landscape and contributes to the success of these spaces. It manages to capture the tranquility of the location and embrace the natural environment.
