House Viviers is situated in the coastal village of Pringle Bay, 100km south of Cape Town. The house nestles between the fynbos of the Kogelberg mountains. The 84m², two bedroom house was designed for comfort, simple-living and connection to the landscape around it.
The houseis builton a small portion of the 730m² site, giving the impression that the house is isolated within the landscape. The use of simple materials such as the white bagged walls and cement floors, and exposed roof beams lend an honesty to the house.
