The Silver Bay home by SAOTA, Antoni Associates & OKHA.
This architectural design answered a brief to create a holiday home for a young family that could be enjoyed by an extended circle of friends and family. The house creates an internal environment that maximizes the connection with the view, while minimizing views on neighboring buildings.
The site is located at Shelley Point on the West Coast Peninsula that runs from Saldanha Bay in the South, to St Helena Bay in the North.
The design is largely formed by three contextual conditions. The first is the elevated entrance which placed the living spaces on the upper level and the bedrooms and playroom on the lower level. This decision allowed the living spaces to maximize the views of the bay and to see the water’s edge. The second issue is the prevailing South-Easterly wind. The challenge here is that the views are in this direction and a large set of glazed sliding doors allows the maximum view.
