Cape Town-based architecture firm SAOTA recently completed OVD 919, a Cape Town home positioned on the mountain ridge below Lion’s Head. Encapsulating the expansive 360-degree mountain and sea views, the architecture draws strength from the concrete finish used to create monumental forms which contrast to the copper roof. Limited to only two storeys above the ridge, the main living areas, pool terrace, and garden are below with the family bedrooms strategically positioned at the uppermost level for privacy.
