One of the prettiest areas in our country to go visit, in my humble opinion, is the Garden Route. Spanning from Heidelberg to Storms River the Garden Route also boasts the one of the finest climates in the world. So naturally this is one of the most sought after areas in South Africa in which to have either a holiday home, or if you are lucky, to live in permanently.
If you are fortunate enough to have a home, permanent or holiday, along this gorgeous coastline then you would absolutely want its architecture to work with the beautiful climate and views that abound! One such residential project, that displays the execution of this architectural design necessity to full effect is Cove 6.
Built in the beautiful and exclusive Cove estate, part of the Pezula Resort in Knysna, this gorgeous SAOTA built home is, in a word, exquisite! Literally perched on the side of a cliff, the Cove 6 home architectural design takes full advantage of the stunning setting and views while carefully blending in with the surrounds.
SAOTA designed the home to blend seamlessly with the environment, being at once contemporary and modern while still working unobtrusively with the picturesque fynbos setting. Built of rough hewn stone, warm dark timber, glass and tactile concrete cantilevered structures, the architectural design of Cove 6 successfully merges the interior with the exterior and the substantial views.
