Plettenberg Bay House
Kritzinger Architects have completed a new four bedroom home in Plettenberg Bay for one of South Africa's most prominent real estate agents. Nestled into the hillside of an exclusive golf estate, the home overlooks the Plettenberg Bay Golf course and Piesang Valley and has far reaching views of the Outeniqua Mountain range.The living, dining and kitchen areas are accommodated on the ground floor in a large open plan "pavilion" building with timber terraces on both sides. The flat roof of the pavilion structure serves as an accessible roof garden planted with a variety of indigenous shrubs. Large double glazed sliding doors on both the North and South facades of the living area ensure a seamless transition between interior and exterior spaces. A wide entrance hall on the first floor serves as a gallery space and forms a strong arrival axis with direct views of the golf course and pool from the entrance lobby. The four bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom, are located on the upper floor and designed to capture the mountain views.
