House St. Johns Higgovale

This premium property is located at the prestigious St. Johns Estate in Higgovale, which is located on the slopes of Table Mountain and overlooks the Mother City. The retaining walls create a strong connection between the house, the site and the wider environment, because the retaining wall stones were mined on the site during the excavation.

The house stands out for the use of high quality materials, such as Italian porcelain tiles, marble and stainless steel. The kitchen was imported from Italy and features a central cooking island with bar counter.

The feature floating stair is connected to a bridge element set within a double volume entrance area and is lit from above by a slender rectangular shape skylight which washes natural light down into this pivotal space of the house.
