Mountain House I
Cape Town

Extension and alterations
360sqm & 150sqm
Completed 2016

An insitu concrete extension to a large family home on the slopes of Table Mountain. The extension acts partially as a canopy to a linear verandah, whilst also extending the family’s living and kitchen areas. Concrete is the singular material and becomes a backdrop to the house’s extensive indigineous garden. Large expanses of sliding glass doors and sheer curtains are thresholds from interior to exterior, giving shade but allowing the panoramic views of topography and harbour.
