The site for this west coast home is a remote, windy spot on the outskirts of Langebaan, South Africa. This West Coast home addresses the human need for both prospect and refuse. It both fits into and takes possession of the landscape. Inside the home layers are revealed slowly. On the first storey, a gallery runs the length of the house with rooms spilling of it. This hide-away and anchor point for a Johannesburg businessman encompasses the character of old west coast architecture with a modern twist.
