House Mahika

This unique home in the beautiful Western Cape coastal village of Pringle Bay blends in harmoniously with the local vegetation known as fynbos and echoes the dramatic shapes of the local mountains.

A superbly energy-efficient, ultra-modern home in a sensitive seaside ecosystem

Pringle Bay is on the Western Cape’s “Whale Coast”, approximately one hour from Cape Town. It is located between the Kogelberg Nature Reserve and the Atlantic Ocean, in an area with the highest floral diversity in the world. This is the precious natural environment into which the organic shape of House Mahika was “dropped from the sky” through careful landscape design, and in which it has been lovingly maintained by its environmentally committed owner.

Shaped by sustainability

The design of House Mahika was driven by a strong belief in sustainability – from the organic shape of the house and its excellent thermal insulation, down to the solar geysers, photovoltaic panels and LED lighting.

Two interlocking sections

This ultra-modern home consists of two interlocking sections: an ample four-bedroom house and a self-contained loft studio, and features five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two kitchens and a scullery, two sitting rooms, a balcony and a gallery with stunning views over False Bay towards Cape Point.
