Finished in 2009 by an architectural company called COA, the Waters Edge Beach House can be found within the incredible city of Cape Town in South Africa and features a superb, contemporary design. Since it was built in close proximity to a stunning beach, the abode provides breathtaking views of the distant waters and of the fine sands, views that can be admired effortlessly through large windows from almost every room.
Moreover, this contemporary masterpiece flaunts passive cooling and heating technologies that allow it to ensure an enviable degree of comfort throughout the day despite the frequent climate changes that are known to occur in the area. The sliding timber shutter system plays a particularly important role in maintaining adequate levels of light within the abode, and so it can be manipulated with ease according to the owner’s preference.
From the COA:
Inspired by simple clean lines, this modern beach front home is designed to maximize the beach lifestyle and views, while enjoying the duality of the wind protected courtyard pool and garden.
Focusing on passive design principles this house is also layered with an extensive sliding timber shutter system that allows the building to be manipulated to suite the changing sun and weather patterns.
This home boasts extreme attention to detail and the minimalist approach to individual elements and quality craftsmanship have pushed the boundaries on every front of the building process.
