Ilkley is a small multi residential development situated on the upper slopes of Table Mountain overlooking Sea Point and the Atlantic ocean.

The form is generated by staggered trapezoidal floors and deep upstands that solves both privacy from the street while also enabling wide views.

The diagonal room divisions spreads the views far and wide, blurring boundaries between inside and out.

The exaggerated indoor outdoor experience together with its overall sculptural focus gives Ilkley a timeless responsive and vernacular quality.
