House Geerts, Camps Bay

Set high up against the 12 Apostles with commanding views, the challenging strong summer winds present the ongoing challenge of how to take advantage of the beauty offered and avoid the fierce wind during the summer months.

The outdoor living terraces are sheltered from the dominant summer winds by the formation of an L-shaped shield created by the living areas and master bedroom, with deep overhangs created off-shutter concrete slabs which continue to form the walls, reinforcing the visual form of the wind-shield.
