Living in the landscape

Residency at Steenberg Green Estate sets the tone for a living environment in harmony with the scenic surroundings to ensure a physical and visual connection with the park-like setting of the estate as well as the mountain ranges beyond the property.

The horizontality of the homes is an architectural expression of the mountains encircling the estate. One is aware of the expansiveness of the valley being contained and framed by Devil’s Peak, Constantiaberg, The Elephant Eye, Wolfkop, Steenberg and Muizenberg Peak – all these form a natural enclosure similar to a building’s walls defining habitable space. Living at Steenberg Green places its residents at the centre of this semi-rural landscape and capitalizes on the synergy between Home and Landscape.

Thick stone walls anchor each home to the land, but connecting the building with the landscape is also a dynamic relationship – achieved through elevating building mass from the ground plane: the first floor concrete structures appear to float over open air spaces below them. The tension created by large cantilevering structures and generous overhangs draws the eye outwards to the horizon and distant mountains. Each home conjures a magical experience of being between earth and sky.

Contrasting natural materials such as stone with glass will brings a contemporary aesthetic to the residence. The balanced interplay of the relationships between solid and void, light to dark and smooth to textured adds interest and drama to beautiful architectural design.

Material selections include stone walls and board-marked concrete for natural colour and texture. Masonry walls are plastered and painted in neutral grey colours. Timber shutters add warmth to the palette and assist with privacy and sun control. Rheinzink metal cladding in graphite grey recall memories of rural sheds in the area, yet in a sophisticated and timeless manner. All materials have been selected to age naturally and gracefully with minimal requirement for maintenance.

Building massing is fragmented into smaller blocks to reduce visual impact, and arranged in such manner to offer maximum enjoyment of sun and light and to create exterior spaces where al fresco living can be sheltered from prevailing summer winds. Large overhangs provide sun shelter in summer months. Living spaces and bedrooms have been connected to outside decks, pools and patios with ceiling-height sliding doors – with doors opened the boundary between interior and exterior spaces becomes blurred and one may fully enjoy the landscaped surroundings and views. The landscape becomes the centrepiece of daily living at Steenberg Green.
