Ocean View Drive
Kritzinger Architects recently completed the transformation of an existing house in Fresnaye, Cape Town. The brief called for a new contemporary home that maximises open plan living and accentuates the spectacular ocean views. Much of the existing house was demolished along a pre-determined ‘cut-line’ and replaced with a contemporary façade to give the building a new identity. The first floor living areas and second floor bedrooms are designed to open up to the elements, while large sliding screens offer privacy and shade when required. The result is a striking transformation of an old dysfunctional dwelling into a new contemporary family home.
