Built on a sloping site within the sand dunes, MB Residence feels like a direct extension of the coastline. With plenty of room for the whole family to move, the ground level occupies a garage, entrance, laundry and children’s bedrooms and bathrooms. The first floor is orientated for family life and communal living and houses the open kitchen and living zones which flow out to a decked patio and pool.
In contrast, the second floor is a parents’ retreat in the form of a generous primary bedroom, walk-in-wardrobe and luxurious bathroom. Throughout each space, Pieter was guided by the direction of natural light and coastal views, which filter in through the home at various angles as you move through each floor. “It needed to be a house that felt warm, open to its surroundings and to feel the nature filtering in,” Pieter says.
