Cape architect Jenny Mills understands that the challenge of modern design is as much about how to make confined spaces work as juggling the arrangement of rooms. Take this contemporary, three-storey holiday home that she designed: the coastal site was somewhat hemmed in by other buildings, yet she’s managed to negate the effects of close neighbours and create a home that has an uplifting light, airy and spacious feel.
