House 4AK | Kleinmond
Western Cape | 2019
Located in a small town on the South coast of the Overberg overlooking the majestic Palmietberg Mountains to the North and the tumultuous Atlantic Ocean to the south, House 4AK stands in an indigenous fynbos garden with a decked courtyard at its heart.
Designed as a retreat for a family where inhabitants are encouraged to interact via the central courtyard which forms the link between the various spaces and volumes.
The living space, kitchen and courtyard is intersected by the bedroom block, which cantilevers over the front door to protect it from the elements, while announcing its presence to the street. The interior spaces are orientated towards the views and the sanctuary of the courtyard, which also acts as an extension of the living room and outdoor dining area, reinforcing the ability to include the courtyard as part of the living spaces. The main bedroom overlooks a fynbos roof garden set to enhance the view by seemingly integrating the building with the natural beauty of the mountains.
