The simple life

A strict budget and stunning location set the program for this incredible beach house on the west coast of South Africa designed by Australian firm Gavin Maddock Design Studio. The client brief was to create a modern holiday home and in response to this, and site conditions, the architect has created a double pavilion home that pairs back the materials palate and opens the house fully to the expansive views across the Atlantic Ocean.

Throughout, concrete and white wall reign supreme and create the perfect canvas for a simple and well-considered furniture scheme. Rich texture and earthy colours drawing from the surrounding sand dunes set the style for relaxed living and an easy pace of life. Together with ceilings of over three metres and seamless integration between the indoor and outdoor living spaces, this home really does hit the brief perfectly.
