cape town-based architectural firm SAOTA has recently completed 'la lucia', a residence along the northern coast of kwazulu natal
in durban, south africa. nestled within a grove of milkwood trees, the front door is partially concealed by a pair of these trees
which flank the entry walk. upon passing to the continuous interior space, a grand view of the ocean is revealed, framed with
the ceiling clad with aligned timber slats. the entire room opens to a sea-facing pool deck and garden to the west of the structure.
a series of metal panels line the lower and upper levels, sliding along the facade to completely or partially seal it off for privacy
or to minimize solar gain. the screens are made from bronzed anodised aluminum evoking the texture of the nearby leaf canopies.

four individual terraces project from the upper level bedrooms. selected by antoni associates, a neutral palette of sand-colored
concrete floors, bleached timber, natural leathers and grey linens are accented with touches of charcoal, teal and azure.
