A combination of bold and discreet lighting was used to create a wow factor and the layering of lighting set various moods. Subtle lighting has been incorporated in all recesses and feature bulkheads to give a warm glow to peripheral edges. Concealed lighting has also been used to highlight and accentuate the organic natural finishes. In the dining room a customized crystal chandelier suspended from the ceiling rafters. Other feature lighting includes a custom designed ring light by AA Interiors, over the informal braai room and a signature Willow Lamp in the main bedroom.
On arrival one is lead up delicate cantilevering concrete stairs alongside an immense off-shutter concrete wall which tapers dramatically towards its base – and thence into a triple volume Entrance Foyer. Here visitors are welcomed by a sculpture set into a water-feature and, through full height glazing, glimpses of mountain beyond. Monolithic stairs are suspended above and filter shafts of refracted morning light creating a sense of calm. The Study, Gym, Massage Room and luxurious Guest Bedrooms are all situated at the Ground Floor behind vegetation, screens and double glazing considerately layered to provide privacy and peace.
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.
