Cove 3 is situated in Knysna, South Africa and the setting is pure magic with its beautiful hilltop place and remarkable panoramic views. It is made by Greg Truen and Roxanne Kaye of SAOTA, with the interior layout by Mark Rielly and Tavia Pharaoh of Antoni Associates. “The short was to develop a property for a Johannesburg based mostly household that could at some point be utilised as a household residence but would initially be used for holidays. The internet site enjoys spectacular views and it was essential that the connection to these views was maximised,” says Greg Truen, Project Partner. From its entrance, Cove three seems to be a single story home but with its location on the edge of a hilltop, the property travels down the slope to produce 3 distinct volumes.
The architects chose materials that would let Cove 3 to mix with its surrounding atmosphere. The components employed during the house had been off-shutter concrete, Rheizink roofing, timber cladding, stone and exposed aggregate. Water is this place is a continual concern so a large underground cistern was positioned under the home’s backyard terrace to harvest rainwater. A heat pump and a water-based mostly underneath floor heating program is utilised to reduce the Cove 3’s power needs.
The main entrance opens up to a hallway with a bedroom suite, comprehensive with sitting area off to the correct and the 3-vehicle garage off to the left. A 2nd hall prospects from the garage to a bigger and grander master suite that extends all the way to the back of the property – overlooking the expansive hilltop ocean views.
The sitting area in the bedroom suite is contained inside the concrete section of the home. The raw elegance of the concrete development is celebrated on the two the walls and the ceiling.
The bedroom is divided into zones of sleeping, bathing, dressing and more. A headboard wall produces the division among the all the bathroom locations, except the soaker tub. It truly is positioned proper next to the bed and alongside the wall of glazings and only a wall of curtains separates the two regions. It is the very same floor strategy utilized in the bedroom suite one degree down.
The master suite, although completely separate in location from the two bedroom suites, keeps a visual connection via the walls of glazings that wrap three sides of the zone. To make certain privacy the dropped ceiling over the king bed is curtained.
The master bedroom functions a wall of glass in between the ensuite and the sleeping spot – to make certain uninterrupted views of the coastline from both zones.
The layout of this top volume is ‘L’ shaped with the garage and master suite on a single side and a massive bedroom suite on the other. Only the grand entry stair divides the two arms of the ‘L’ but this is not the only approach from and to the master suite. A huge spiral staircase also connects the two volumes.
With a grand staircase at the front of the house and a spiral staircase midway via the social volume traveling each up and down, the dynamics of the social zone is one of connectivity and continual motion. This free-flowing ambiance is more enhanced by the minimalist alternatives of furnishings and accessories. “The interiors are uncluttered and reflect the easy living demands of the clientele. Spaces are sparse, and have been furnished minimalistically which emphasise the sturdy architectural lines and volume of the architecture. The furnishings is contemporary, and a variety of bespoke pieces have been sourced from the designer’s retail outlet OKHA. A neutral palette of ivory, stone and shell complement the normal architectural timber and concrete finishes chosen during,” says Mark Rielly of ANTONI ASSOCIATES.
Just outside the living space, accessed by huge expanses of operable glazings, is a terrace surrounded on two sides by the home’s pool – and on a third by a backyard terrace. The second level bedroom suite opens up to the grassed yard.
A Jacuzzi is positioned just subsequent to the pool and with views everywhere you look and the encounter is undoubtedly that of a vacation property.
The social degree contains one particular of the two big bedroom suites to the correct of the entry stairway and two children’s bedrooms to the left. The principal residing location includes the kitchen, dining area and living room and while these zones are contained within the construction, the huge expanses of operable glazings expose the residence to the terrace, pool and views. This produces this kind of a robust connectivity to the outdoors that the indoor and outside lifestyles are totally woven with each other as a singular entity.
A third volume at the base of the spiral staircase includes a lounge, a guest bedroom and property theater.
A comprehensive solar analysis was done to accomplish as significantly direct sun as attainable. As a end result, a mid-level horizontal sunscreen was extra to the principal level’s double height glazings whilst a timber screen protects the home’s skylight.
