The interior furniture Interiors. The furniture is modern and complementary to the experience of the home. Tactile finishes including timber, textured leathers and raw linens add a sophisticated sense of understated luxury. The clients’ love for colour has been introduced with injections of bold prints and vibrant fabrics. Bespoke furniture from OKHA Interiors is featured throughout.
In contrast to that, a smart home system represents highly sophisticated technology, providing maximum comfort with minimum energy consumption. Geothermal energy from twelve wells is used for heating and cooling, including the heating of the pool water and sanitary water. All premises are being heated and cooled through the concrete structures of the ceilings and the floors, that radiate through it’s entire surface. The Smart home infrastructure takes care about security, maintenance, user comfort, consumption, keeping record and sustainability of the entire system, the interior space and the environment itself.
Two important criteria for the clients were that the project had to include a central courtyard and that the main living areas were to have double volume. At the front of the plot the concept of a traditional Cape Dutch Langhuis with gabled ends was conceptualized. This part of the house was designed to contain the formal lounge & dining, informal lounge & braai room as well as the master bedroom and en-suite, giving all these areas direct access to the front pool terrace with spectacular views to the surrounding vineyards and mountains. In the Langhuis open trusses were used to give all the rooms a larger volume. To the rear of the Langhuis the two side wings and a linking lobby create a sheltered central courtyard which also visually links the kitchen to the family TV lounge. Identical feature stairs link to the guest bedroom suites located in the roof lofts of these back wings.
