House Clovelly

When we designed these homes, we decided to challenge the conventional trend of the precise mono-pitch roof by introducing a subtle curve in the roof sheeting and the fence line. The homes were built on the mountain, and the idea was to camouflage them into the landscape as naturally as possible. We achieved this through the use of curves, colour and the texture of stone cladding. 

The homes were designed with a glass element under the roof, which incorporates the illusion that the roof is floating. The structure appears to be transparent, and the mountain landscape behind it can be seen from the front. This continuous visibility of the mountain pays tribute to the beautifully scenic Cape Fynbos.
