ARRCC’s latest project, Horizon Villa, is an extravagant home and host to the perfect balance of luxury, warmth and comfort.

ARRCC director Mark Rielly and his team took on the challenge to create a home for a young family where they could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle protected from the coastal winds while still being able to enjoy views of the ocean.

The family home features a kitchen, a spacious dining room and a living room in one single space with a dramatic entertainment space located on a level below.

In the second living area, you will find the main bedroom and two children’s en-suite bedrooms each boasting 180-degree views of the ocean. A glass elevator connects the building vertically and for extra convenience, the home features an external service stair connecting the levels externally.

“Our brief was to create a comfortable family home, uncluttered and functional, yet at the same time act as a foil to the dramatic architectural envelope. The main double volume living level is a dynamic and sculptural composition comprising the interplay of volumes, floor levels, elements and planes, ” shared Rielly.

The interior finishes are rich and varied featuring timber cladding, the owners’ artwork and richly coloured mosaic accents. The dining area opens out onto a garden courtyard adorned with a water feature and sculpture. Just further out is a glass-fronted wine cellar located directly under the main bedroom’s study. Out on the pool terrace, there is a variety of covered and uncovered areas to relax around the pool. The entertainment lounge accommodates a bar situated next to the outdoor braai area and finally the envious gazebo at the edge of the pool deck where you get the best ocean views.
