Simola, Knysna

West Ridge Home

West Ridge Home is set on a prominent West facing site above the Knysna River. The challenge of the site provided an interesting design solution. A series of protected courtyards as the building stepped down the slope allowed North light into every room. As a result no compromise was made in terms of views.

A large 4 bedroom, multi level luxury home that is both luxurious and simple.

The large living level courtyard and the covered deck form a seamless connection between formal and informal living. As a result the occupant can connect to sun, views and pool while avoiding unpleasant breezes.

The deliberate use of horizontal concrete elements as the building steps down the slope certainly creates a less imposing structure. We are very proud of this modern and innovative solution on an extremely demanding piece of land.
