Kent, Noordhoek (CT)
Hidden away in the picturesque suburb of Noordhoek just outside Cape Town, you’ll find Kent, boasting a striking yet humble balance of stone, brick and wood. The large glass doors, use of space and natural textures make for the perfect balance between privacy and a seamless connection to the leafy surrounds. The fence, made from local pine, will naturally fade in the African sun to match the soft hues of grey offered by the dotted trees. The use of natural stone walls, contrasted by an exposed brick-face wall and the gravel courtyard, framed by gentle wooden structures, make this Japanese-inspired home a humble fit for the large leafy garden. The continued use of pine on the floors in the living room, complemented by the crisp white on the walls make the house seem bigger than what it is, while simultaneously enhancing natural light.
