Cove 6 House is designed by Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and it is located in Knysna, South Africa. The house is inspired by the beautiful indigenous surroundings. The construction is perched on an exposed cliff enjoying spectacular views.
The materials used for the constructions have natural color palette and the textures of the site. The design is airy and firmly anchored into the landscape, the house surveying the valley and the hills, like a lighthouse. The building fits comfortably into the natural contours of the orientation of the site. The swimming pool comes into the building lines and allows indigenous planting to grow below. Each aspect of the house has a private terrace, exploiting all the landscape. The living space is surrounded by glass walls and by nature. Natural light floods the inner world of the house, the space is opened and you can see the dinner table inviting you to a cozy and friendly family dinner and the beautiful kitchen, the soul of the house.
The house has the advantage of sheltered courtyards or of the terraces, according to the weather. The key to this retreat is its simplicity in terms of the relationship between spaces. The house is a splendid shelter and a nice location for the perfect holiday.
