“The owners asked me to create a timeless house inspired by Mediterranean vernacular architecture,” says architect Gregg Goddard (021 852 6671 or ggarch.co.za) about the jumping off point for this renovation. Featuring three bedrooms and bathrooms, the highlight of this revamped double-storey 450m² house is the double-volume dining room and stairwell, where large floor-to-ceiling windows draw light in from the north and capture the spectacular sea views to the south.
