House St. Johns Higgovale
This premium property is located at the prestigious St. Johns Estate in Higgovale, which is located on the slopes of Table Mountain and overlooks the Mother City. The retaining walls create a strong connection between the house, the site and the wider environment, because the retaining wall stones were mined on the site during the excavation.
The house stands out for the use of high quality materials, such as Italian porcelain tiles, marble and stainless steel. The kitchen was imported from Italy and features a central cooking island with bar counter.
The feature floating stair is connected to a bridge element set within a double volume entrance area and is lit from above by a slender rectangular shape skylight which washes natural light down into this pivotal space of the house.
Our overall experience of working with KMMA to design our house was very positive, as was the end result. KMMA was able to complete the project in a shorter time then expected. We would definitely recommend KMMA to anyone who needs any design services done. Our favourite part of our house is the amount of tall windows. These make the house light, airy and modern. The floating staircase is another exciting feature. We would honestly not change anything of the design after having lived in the house for a while. The design perfectly suits the site and our needs perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ben and his associates. They gave us good advice and saw the project through to completion in a professional and very pleasant way.
