Higgovale House


The construction on a new four bedroom home is currently underway  in the leafy suburb of Higgovale, Cape Town. Much of the existing structure has been retained and reconfigured to include a double garage, guest bedroom and gym, while the other half of the house will be demolished and rebuilt to include additional accommodation. The new structure comprises of two large off-shutter cantilevered concrete slabs which span four meters over a new pool and terrace on the North facade. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area is located on the first floor over looking the pool and garden and a luxurious master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room is positioned on the second floor. The existing structure will be clad in timber and is designed to open up to the view with large folding stacking timber screens. The garden will be completely re-configured and a new elevated driveway added to provide access into the property. The project is programmed to be complete by March 2021.
