SAOTA has designed an authentic holiday home in Pringle Bay, South Africa. The Restio River House has an easy living permanence that shakes off the salty winds and lets in the sun and the natural beauty of the surrounding indigenous vegetation and mountain valley.
The interior was designed by ARRCC together with the owner to ensure an eclectic mix of easy-living and comfortable furniture throughout. The house sits on the banks of Buffels River and faces due north while the westerly facades of the lounge and terrace look towards Cape Point.
The individual open-plan rooms flow seamlessly, forming one extended living zone and central space. The welcoming kitchen and lounge area is at the centre, with a sofa in the kitchen large enough to seat the entire family. The living rooms have a direct relationship and the flow between these spaces add a unique dynamic to the house. A sense of mystery is created through the various spaces glimpsing each other.
