The North facing property offers spectacular long distance mountain views and attractive short distance views overlooking ToKai Forest. The building is designed as a contemporary farmhouse comprising of a collection of building elements that are strategically placed to maximise views while at the same time offering privacy, natural light and protection from the elements. The large site called for a fragmented building approach of appropriately scale elements that are interconnected in a similar way to many of the Cape's historic farm houses. Landscaping is designed to compliment the architecture consisting of orchards, vegetable gardens, meadows and and eco pool.
