Sea House

– Betty’s Bay, Western Cape –

A private retreat for two overhanging the sea in Betty’s Bay, this building extends the plane of the land into a constructed promontory, roof planted, intermediate zone totally glazed. The mountain side of the building is carved out in curves that respond to the rising land behind it, creating coves and bays to the flowering fynbos and mountain while the front overhangs the cliff and the pounding sea in a vast vertiginous curve.
