‘house VK1’, a single family dwelling by south african practice greg wright architects is situated between the lion’s head cliffs and the sea in camps bay near cape town, south africa. the common areas of the house are elevated to provide impressive ocean views. a wall comprised of large sliding glass doors may be opened entirely to lead to a veranda and pool. inhabitants access the private rooms of the lower level via cantilevered concrete stairs.

wrapping a central courtyard, natural light permeates the ground floor from above. the material palette comprised of polished concrete floors, textured concrete, stainless steel with accents of natural grey stone and glass creates a canvas background for the dynamic activity occurring within.
