House Northshore Drive - Lake Michelle, Noordhoek

Designed & delivered by Riaan Marais - assisted by Taariq Jumat

This modern, yet comfortable family home was designed around a wind protected courtyard. This was the main ordering principle of the design as the southeaster can make outside living in this part of the world quite challenging.


The house is set on the edge of the lake in the beautiful security estate of Lake Michelle, with beautiful views in all directions. These range from the sunrise view over the lake to the east, to the sunset view over Noordhoek beach to the West and beautiful views of Chapmans Peak to the North.

The design had to comply with the estate design guidelines, but at the same time we wanted to give it a distinct modern feel with lots of glass to connect the interior to the beautiful landscape.

Client Feedback :

I'm really happy with the architectural services provided by Connect Architects. They listened extremely well to my requirements to ensure that I was satisfied with the end-design of my house in Noordhoek. They didn't only meet the agreed timelines of the project, they managed to finalize the project sooner than expected. The experience was all round great and I would definitely recommend Connect Architects!
