South African Architects SAOTA have one of the most impressive residential design portfolios I personally, have come across. One of the many residential projects they have delivered is La Lucia, a family holiday beach house on the North Coast of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. I like to think of the design style as Tropical contemporary. The space planning, massing and material compositions make for a very contextual residence that responds to the climate and carries a unique aesthetic and character.
Here’s their description of the design,
The Interiors by ANTONI ASSOCIATES express simplicity and restraint while making the home comfortable and cosy. Sand-coloured polished concrete floors, bleached timber, natural leathers and grey linens, are anchored by soft neutrals and countered with touches of charcoal, teal and azure.
