PLETTENBERG BAY, SOUTH AFRICA
Scope of Build: A 1970s house owned by the same family since its construction needed updating, whilst respecting the memories it holds and improving the view of the nearby lagoon.
Outcome: Replacing the external stair with an internal one makes the house easier to use, and connecting the house to an underused outbuilding creates a new bedroom. Custom built-in and free-standing furniture adds useful and pleasant to use storage space. The open kitchen and dining area is finished in simple, easy to clean materials, allowing more time at the beach.
Cost: £225,000 equivalent (including fees)
Cost per m²: £1,250
