Salt Rock House is a 530 m² (5700 ft²) modern 3-bedroom home situated on Kwa Zulu Natal’s North Coast of South Africa. Metropole Architects designed this open plan house with magnificent 180° panoramic sea views in 2016.
According to the architects,
The house is a bold contemporary architectural design set into the picturesque coastal suburbia that is the Dolphin Coast, celebrating the year round warm coastal climate, local indigenous flora and fauna and magnificent 180° panoramic sea views where one might even be able to catch a glimpse of Humpback and Southern Right whales migrating along the coastline of KwaZulu-Natal from their southern feeding grounds to their breeding grounds off the coast of Mozambique.
Salt Rock House represents an uninhibited architectural expression free from the restrictive stylistic design guidelines typically found in the numerous gated housing estates located in the area.
The house stands proud on its steep site and is a progressive cantilever form arranged over three cascading levels that proclaims its presence and pioneers a paradigm shift in the architectural design language of its context.
