Synopsis
When architect Bert Pepler first saw the empty plot of land on the lower slopes of Signal Hill in Cape Town’s Tamboerskloof he was struck by the spectacular view and the opportunity to capture it in every room of the house he was being asked to design.

These views sweep from the harbour, across the City Bowl, to Lion’s Head and instantly made the idea of building on the erf a compelling one. ‘I loved the site irrespective of its size,’ says Bert of the dramatically sloping 438m2 sliver of land, the product of a sub-division. He was more concerned about the ‘sun direction and the “tunnel vision” created by the structures on the adjoining sites’. The owners also wanted to keep the grove of wild olives growing on the lower portion of the property. As the brief was to create a three-bedroom home with a large living and dining space, the only solution was to go up.
