The Spa House was created by Metropolis Design, a team of talented architects with offices in Cape-Town. The fabulous residential project was completed last year. Enjoying the wonderful surroundings of the Hout Bay coastal suburb of Cape Town, the owners of this semi-transparent house desired a contemporary structure that would invite natural mountainside views inside through huge glass windows. Entertaining and relaxation facilities were designed in response to the client’s requests – an oasis of water-related features.
Owners and friends can enjoy the luxurious recreational and spa facilities of the separate Spa House connected to the main building by foot paths. The steel and concrete structure was adorned in a continuous way, to blur the lines between inside and outside. Overlooking the bay and harbor, the modern home is nestled between sandstone formations that encouraged the architects to integrate the building in the surrounding African landscape. With a stunning dining area submerged below water level, the house also benefits from an island-inspired pool deck and an underwater spa, massage rooms, deep and shallow pools, children’s pool and jacuzzi.
