weekend getaway
This simple yet elegant beach home is designed for getaways with friends and family. It has a living space with a kitchenette and one ensuite bedroom on the ground floor, with the master suite on the first floor. An indoor open-air Jacuzzi is the centre of attraction and is open for all to use.
A taste for the purity of materials and a need for minimal maintenance led to the idea of having fair finished concrete on the ceiling and hand finished and polished concrete on the floor and many of the wall surfaces. Pigments are added for that touch of colour.
The detailing is minimal which gives the whole space an understated elegance. Whites and greys dominate the palette allowing the house to blend with the surrounding elements of nature.
