House La Croix Fresnaye

This family oriented house is designed in an “L” shape to maximise the views, but also because it allowed for North facing orientation of the living spaces. The 15 metre tall stairwell serves as a strong connector element around which the other elements are arranged.

The main living level is arranged as a series of interlinked spaces, which leads one from most formal to most informal areas. A feature of the formal lounge area is a whiskey bar with backlit glass cubes highlighting the owners collection of single malts.The kitchen is the heart of the home and is a strong visual element which is shown off from the dining area through large panes of glass. The kitchen was imported from Italy and has white high gloss lacquer finishes with white and grey stone tops. It furthermore features a motorised extractor hood that lifts out of the way not to obstruct sea views from the kitchen, a separate pantry, scullery, laundry and cold room.

Leading off and open plan to the kitchen, is an informal breakfast area. This area in turn opens into a spacious family room/TV room, which features a “Rheinzinc” clad wall. This is a metal sheeting which is commonly used overseas for roofing purposes. The advantage of using this material to clad, is that it is offered in roll format, making it impossible to create a seamless 9 meter long clad wall that is unique in look and feel. The floating planes of ceiling bulkheads add a sense of height and simultaneously conceal the air-conditioning system.

The first floor comprises the main bedroom ensuite with a spacious dressing room and a bathroom which opens to the bedroom area by means of full height, wooden panelled sliding doors. The main bedroom is situated in the Western wing of the house and juts out to capture the premium views. Four more ensuite bedrooms make up the kids wing. Materials used in the house include raw off shutter concrete, polished granite cladding, imported porcelain tiles, wide plank oak floors and extensive use of glass and aluminium to allow light to flood in while deep overhangs are designed to cut out solar ingress.
