HOUSE #10 – Out in the Open

Styling Jeanne Botes Photographs Micky Hoyle Original text Deborah Louw An airy, contemporary Hout Bay property is an imaginative reflection of its wooded mountainside environment. WHEN November 2011 ISSUE Summer WHERE Hout Bay, Cape Town WHAT A spacious house in a residential estate with a panoramic view of all of Hout Bay and beyond… The sharply sloping site was just one of the structural challenges that faced the owner; bringing the project to fruition took a team effort, from architect Paolo Deliperi to M+M Space Design’s Mark and Michele Metior. The dominant materials – timber, steel and glass – give it a contemporary feel, while inside it’s all silky hi-tech function and form. When the exterior doors are folded away, the home resembles a massive outdoor courtyard.
