La Lucia

Posted on Mon, 11 Jun 2012 by midcenturyjo

The brief called for a relaxed family holiday beach house on the North Coast of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. What has risen between the milkwood trees is another statement house by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects. Striking screens sliding across the ocean facade provide privacy, light control and pattern play while once again the architects focus on the transition from luxurious interiors spaces to the equally luxurious outdoors. Poolside is prime real estate in all their designs. 

The Interiors by Antoni Associates express simplicity and restraint while making the home comfortable and cosy. Sand-coloured polished concrete floors, bleached timber, natural leathers and grey linens, are anchored by soft neutrals and countered with touches of charcoal, teal and azure.

La Rimule says:

Very very beautiful ! Of course !
But I don't feel very conformable with so much luxury in a country with so much poor people !
It's shocking, isn't it ?

AMR says:

Beautiful. And the look of lit/glowy soft blue swimming pools at night really gets to me…

Paul says:

Beautiful house in an amazing part of the world. LaRimule I presume you don't live in South Africa? You should come visit before making assertions that people shouldn't live in lovely homes. In fact South Africa, whilst very polarized in terms of wealth, has a large middle and upper class and there are plenty of examples of incredible architecture and design to fit all income brackets. We would love to experience Africa at its best.

What an amazing house!
