Project: Cove 6—Pezula Knysna
Location: Knysna, Western Cape, South Africa
Overlooking the open ocean, the Cove 6 Villa is a contemporary tour de force of cinematic architectural staging. The individual spaces of the residence were conceived of as viewing platforms, each offering a unique and precious vantage point for visually consuming the surrounding heathland (fynbos in the local Afrikaans). In keeping with this design imperative, the different interior spaces of the villa unfold along long view lines, never fully closed off or isolated. Even the circulation of the residence is kept open, with a spectacular cantilevered stair connecting the principal levels.
