House Goncalves | Onverwacht

Lovely family home located on the beautiful Onverwacht wine estate, with views of the vineyards and mountains.

We have been approached by a lovely couple to design a home for their small family. The site is located on a beautiful wine estate overseeing the vineyards and Groenberg Mountains. The brief entails of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a guest bedroom with an en-suite, as well as an open living, dining and kitchen area. The design aims to open up to its beautiful surrounding and caters for 2 outside terraces embracing the views. The estate has a strict architectural guideline allowing only for Cape Dutch thatch houses that gains inspiration from its winelands heritage in form and mass. The main entrance, double volume and southern façade openings are aligned with a central axis leading one’s eye up the double volume and through a window framing the Groenberg Mountain.
