House Porter

House Porter is a three bedroom single family home located in Klein Slangkop Private Estate in Kommetjie. The magnificent coastline, mountains and fynbos provide for a warm, inviting and relaxed atmosphere, no matter what season.

This environment was the lens through which the estate’s guidelines were interpreted. The guidelines intend to create an environment inspired by the principles of the Victorian timber beach cottage tradition of the Southern Cape Coast.

This resulted in the form giving devices like the double pitch roof, dormers, and lean to roofs of the building assembled around the primary focus of being connected. Firstly to the outside environment, so that one can be at home without regret of having missed out on a beautiful day outdoors, and secondly to people in the community, valuing friendships and togetherness.
