Jenny Mills Architects nestles the Western Cape Beachside Retreat on a rocky peninsula in South Africa. The property welcomes guests with an inner courtyard planted with native dune plants in a space protected from the harsh winds. Once inside, floor-to-ceiling glazing opens the main living area up to panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The transparent walls also expand the interior to a wooden deck suspended above the landscape. The spacious terrace and its pool are afforded sweeping ocean vistas, as well as glimpses of mountains in the distance.
