The Reserve House by Metropole Architects

Designed by Metropole Architects, The Reserve House is a house with vibrant and eclectic interior spaces. Located in Dolphin Coast, South Africa, the house has a total floor area of 650m² (6,997ft²).

With the site facilitating a wide ocean frontage, the design was able to respond with a “Wingspread” type architecture that appears to float over the indigenous dune vegetation, taking full advantage of the panoramic beach and sea views.

The Reserve house is a fusion of Tropical Modern Architecture with a number of bold Futurist elements, including a 4.3m high angled offshutter concrete wall that penetrates through the entrance hall, a splayed “T” shaped feature concrete column that supports a significant cantilevered top storey, and upswept cantilever pools that project out towards the ocean, which all combine to evoke the impression of movement.
