We had the chance to really explore contemporary architecture to the full with this project. The family wanted an extra holiday home for their four sons and their respective families. They have been coming to Kenton for as long as they can remember and it really had a sentimental value that could not be measured.

Views were plenty with the Kariega River on our front stoep literally. The house was designed around three separate buildings each housing different elements. It was linked by a timber covered screened walkway, throwing dramatic shadows in all directions.

The oversized kitchen and living areas breathe in the sea air and views in a contemporary shed like atmosphere. The aesthetic volume internally and externally speaks of an Eastern Cape vernacular of a past era but embraces its 21st century vibrancy.
