SAOTA completed Melkbos in 2001, which is a family home located in Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, South Africa. It features an airy and light space, with skylights and lots of windows.
When entering the house, the eyesight is captured by the sea facing side of the dwelling, which opens up and embraces the landscape of the West Coast.
The road facing screen wall is isolated by living spaces through skylight which runs the full length of the house. All the rooms are facing sea views because the house is organized in a linear manner.
The property is perfect for those who want to escape the city life because it is a secluded and tranquil place where a family could grow beautifully.
