From the architect. Los clientes son una pareja británica que encargó una casa de seis dormitorios y siete niveles en base a la remodelación de un edificio existente en Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica. Los niveles más bajos de la antigua estructura fueron remodelados totalmente, mientras que el nivel superior fue demolido para permitir la suma de dos nuevos niveles.

"La inspiración fue extraída de la montaña y sus colores oscuros, los que se expresan en la fachada permitiendo que el edificio se mimetice visualmente con el lugar", cuenta Greg Truen, socio del proyecto.

El terreno tiene espectaculares vistas y el impacto del sol fue un informante clave que contribuyó al diseño en general. Éste determinó la elección de pantallas, persianas y celosías que entregan a los niveles más bajos una mayor privacidad.

La sala de estar puede abrir al este y el oeste por completo, generando la sensación de un pabellón abierto. Los acabados y los detalles han sido cuidadosamente considerados para lograr visualmente un todo integrado.

Se le dio una mayor calidez al interior a través del uso de madera de Nogal, que también se compone de Mármol negro y vidrio. La zona de entrada circular, revestida también de madera, es una de las principales características de la casa; el espacio es amplificado por una instalación lumínica de vidrio.

Using 'screens, shutters, louvres, an exterior clad in powder-coated aluminium and a living room that opens up onto the west and the east completely...', is an effecient, low tech and sustainable use of materials and method. Nice indeed.

I quite like it overall. The three biggest issues for me:

1: People on the sixth floor terrace can see into the master bathroom on the seven floor. A house in the distance also appears to be able to see in.

2: Not enough garage spaces, the garage should accept at least 4 cars (looks like enough room for 6). I mean come on, $$$ place with 6 bedroom's and only 3 garage spaces? That area is also going to get hammered with salt spray so the cars can use all the protection they can get rather than being parked outside.

3: There doesn't appear to be much (at least not mentioned) in the area of sustainability and efficiency. At the very least I would expect solar hot water, well thought out natural ventilation - automated windows/vents to help control internal temperature, a grey water recycling system and rain water tanks.
