The home’s design contrasts a dramatic multi-level form with refined, high-quality internal detailing to create a sophisticated tranquil sanctuary for its discerning owners.

The expansive, ground level entry hall features a dramatic floating staircase with sculptural lighting which leads up to the main living areas on the first floor and a spectacular 180 degree view of the beach and the Indian Ocean.

Sensuous sweeping curves flow through the kitchen bulkhead and cabinets, and these are subtly complimented by custom pendant lighting, contemporary modular furniture and black limestone flooring. A constant and deliberately minimal palette gives this home a seamless flow and a very spacious feel, ensuring the view is the home’s most celebrated feature.

Our design uses materials chosen to withstand the harsh coastal conditions and also features many sustainable elements. Conscious of heat gain from Western facing glass, a combination of external Vental blinds, double internal blinds and automation maximize the control of unforgiving direct light to living spaces. Importantly, all sustainable measures are seamlessly integrated without compromising design outcome or quality; an approach Hillam Architects adopts with its projects.
