The house has three rooms and breakfast is served in the lounge/dining area with views over the sea and the spectacular Robberg Peninsula. “The idea behind the building was to use primary forms and clean geometric shapes in order to create a composition with a sense of clarity and calmness. Raw materials like exposed stock brick and off-shutter concrete were used to reduce the need for maintenance while allowing the building to weather over time, thereby increasingly blending into its surrounding natural environment. Its primary aim is to allow for sweeping views of its surroundings – one could think of the building as being similar to one of the many birds that can often be seen from its living room, stretching its legs and craning its head to peak over the dunes towards the sea and Robberg beyond.” – Mike Louw, Architect
