Werf walls and a pergola covered walkway lead to the front entrance which opens into the courtyard lobby overlooking the reflective pond and greenery. Glass pocket doors create separate entrances and lead into the side wings. Focal features of the entrances are the floating sculpture ledges. Here Angus Taylor sculptures are reflected in the fractured mirror wall cladding. The same fractured pattern is again used in the smokey mirror cladding of the stairways. Limed oak cantilevered treads, timber cladding with white stone ledges and frameless glass balustrading add to the transparency and airiness of these spaces. Clear blown glass globes by David Reade are suspended and reflected in the double volume stairwells adding interest.
Having completed two separate projects for their children on the Pearl Valley Golf Estate, the owners planned to re-locate from Pretoria to the Cape and approached AA Interiors to design their new home. The Estate is located on the Eastern fringe of the Stellenbosch mountains and is one of South Africa’s premier golfing residential developments, situated among orchards and vineyards on the outskirts of the historic town of Stellenbosch.
Generous overhangs, external sliding shutters and perforated steel and aluminium eaves assist with naturally shading the facades. All doors and windows have performance glazing and are mostly full height which, together with the careful arrangement of internal spaces, ensured that the magnificent views are optimised for all rooms.
