The Bathroom are located above the lounge and close to the road edge to ensure the best views. All the bedrooms are connected by means of a transparent steel and time bridge, located in the double volume atrium.

The interiors are an exercise in restraint and awareness of the selected materials’ inherent textures and colours. Pieter and Jan-Heyn limited their palette to concrete, timber and stone: honest materials. There’s very little plastering and painting. It’s not always easy to create a sense of warmth and homeliness with that kind of approach.

“A lot of the success of the building had to do with the comprehensive use of joinery, and the attention to detail in the kitchen and bathrooms,” says Pieter. “We aimed to create a warm, homely experience, with much emphasis placed on hand crafted components and the fusing of the work of various tradespeople.”

The furnishings keep to a palette of quiet neutrals and refined design. Natural materials such as leather, wood and steel predominate, with coppery or metallic sparkles providing interest and variety and black adding definition and contrast. Blue, grey, beige and white predominate, although the defining characteristic of all the interiors is the materiality of wood, concrete, glass and steel. Likewise, the natural materials of the furnishings introduce a warm, tactile quality to the house.

“The choice of materials underlines our design philosophy that finishes are to be carefully considered to create a sense of timelessness and calmness,” says Jan-Heyn.

With the passing of time, as the plants grow and the stone and board-marked concrete gathers patina, he hopes the house will age gracefully and become more integrated with its natural surroundings.
