South African design firm Metropolis Design has redefined modern mountainside architecture with its creation of The Spa House.
The house, built in 2011, is situated on a mountainside edge in suburban Hout Bay, and overlooks the bay and harbor. In addition to the overwhelming scenery and the pool, inside the house are guest and living spaces, and spa and entertainment facilities. The minimalistic design emphasizes the potential for modern mountainside architecture to amplify the natural elements of its surroundings. The architecture is stunning, and it fuses cityscape designs with nature.
Even better, the room overlooking the pool in The Spa House is for guests, so I imagine the owners of this house will be popular among friends.
