Dune House

Flamingo Bay, Botriver Lagoon, Overberg

Coming Soon

Due to start construction in early 2021, ‘The Dune House’ is situated in Flamingo Bay Estate on an elevated sand dune surrounded by indigenous fynbos and milkwood trees. The new double storey mono pitched holiday home faces north with panoramic views onto the lagoon and the Kogelberg mountains as a backdrop.

Its layout is a simple rectilinear form with living and guest bedroom on the ground floor, and main bedroom and bunk room on the west and east sides on the upper level. The double volume central living area opens out onto the north deck with cavity sliding doors which disappear into walls and a floating roof over the deck that cantilevers from the minimalist facade above.

The construction technology employed deviates from standard building methods. Ecofriendly, lightweight, recycled polystyrene concrete blocks are used as infill around a structural steel frame. This methodology speeds up the building process and reduces time spent on site – providing a considerably reduced energy footprint and greater passive building comfort as a result.
