MAJESTIC RESIDENCE SOUTH AFRICA

The Aloe Ridge House rises above the ground with its volumetric architecture in an attempt to dethrone the landscape. Inspirational design lines shape a spectacular contemporary home focused on gathering the best views its surroundings have to offer. Located in the Eden Rock Coastal Forest Estate on the southern coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, this recently completed home was imagined by Metropole Architects.

Stone, wood and glass were used to compose a majestic residence where natural light is filtered through a collection of sliding wooden blinds. Photographed by Grant Pitcher, the Aloe Ridge House offers an elegance and openness hard to come by. South African weather not only permitted but encouraged architects to create a seamless connection to the beautiful surroundings. An inviting deck and pool make the invitation to indulge in a lavish design and landscape, entertain and relax.
