Miles and miles at Montrose

High on the ridge of Bishopscourt in Cape Town sits a glass pavillion with views to die for.  The house, Montrose, with its slick modern aesthetic is by South African design firm SAOTA - Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.

Awesome blog, LOVE IT!!!

Lovely home, however with all the glossy and transparent "surfaces" I know I would always be walking into the "walls" and stepping into the water! ;o) ~Sparky

At some point in life, we all want to live in the mall.
