Restio River Modern

Pringle Bay, South Africa
Discover the Drama & Natural Beauty of the Western Cape in This Avant-Garde Inspired Home

Driven by a design philosophy that closely connects function, form and environment, Cape Town based SAOTA Architects created this holiday home in South Africa with the windswept, coastal landscape in mind. 

Having spent five years on the site before building, the architects had the opportunity to study and carefully consider the relationship of the home to its stunning location along the Western Cape and showcases its natural beauty.

Composed of strong slabs of concrete and walls of glass, the home has a nuanced sophistication and was designed to fully enjoy the rituals of holiday living.

Set on the banks of the Buffels River with majestic panoramic ocean and mountain views, it's a beautifully poised contemporary retreat.

Set along Buffels River with the sparkling Atlantic in the foreground, this holiday home in South Africa is a sophisticated and elegant house that inhabits the wild cape landscape in symbiotic harmony.

Designed by Cape Town based architect SAOTA, the house faces north with floor-to-ceiling glazing that floods the interiors with natural light with the westerly facades facing towards Cape Point and gorgeous sunsets. In summer, the house opens up to the cooling breezes from the Atlantic.

The open-plan rooms flow seamlessly, creating a central living zone with the kitchen and lounge area at its center. 

The character and interior architecture of the home demonstrate a stylish modern approach to living with a cool neutral palette and custom made pieces from ARRCC Interiors accented with original Moroccan Berber rugs and colourful kilims, soft leathers, white linens and rich textures creating a sense of calmness.  One of two fireplaces features unique punched brass cladding.

The dining room features a custom table by James Mudge accentuated by the Lindsey Adelman pendant light with a graphic lighting installation from Flos. 

Artwork was carefully curated and paired with the decor, with pieces from artists such as Deborah Poynton and Albert Coertse and is limited to key areas of the home for maximum impact. The neutral colour palette and modest furnishings allow the stunning natural views to be the focus.

There are four en-suite bedrooms and a separate twin room with space for up to 10 guests.

The landscaping incorporates as much indigenous and native plants as possible - surrounding the house and in the internal courtyard with the addition of iconic South African trees - Milkwood, Coral trees and Waterberry’s - making this a true-to-style South African family holiday home.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, DSTV, Sonos audio system kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities. Table tennis, trampoline and board games. 

 

AROUND

Situated along the Atlantic's Western Cape, Pringle Bay is a charming coastal village on the famous Whale Route surrounded by magnificent mountains on three sides. Part of a World Biosphere Reserve, it abounds with wildlife, pristine beaches and a wealth of cultural and culinary explorations.

It’s an ideal jumping off point for some of South Africa’s most amazing natural wonders including the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, Boulder Beach’s penguin colonies, Hout Bay and the many national parks surrounding the peninsula. Head into the bustling city streets of Cape Town (about 90 minutes away) for a taste of “The Mother City” with a cosmopolitan mix of multi-cultural influences and sophisticated big city delights. 

Don’t miss the candy-colored Bo-Kaap, the seafront promenade, Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, the sobering Robben Island and the world-class wine route and vineyards that surround the cape.
