Clifton 2A by SAOTA

Located atop a cliff in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa, the designers at SAOTA crafted this contemporary family residence overlooking a breathtaking coastline. To create a spacious living room, the architects elevated the main level consisting of the guest room, gym, study and garage. The ground floor is set partially into the steep site, maximizing the living space and isolating it from the noisy provincial roads. The first and second floors are set back and rotated to create a protective aesthetic over the external terrace. The whole residence is positioned below the Lions Head, with a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean, Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles beyond.
