The Mountain House by Van Der merwe Miszewski Architects is another example of how luxury can coexist with nature. It was recently completed by the Cape Town-based studio on the foot of Table Mountain and near the Table Mountain National Park in Cape Town, South Africa.

For a minimal impact on the environment, the house was built as a complex of five pavilions with wavy roofs that make them look like a part of the landscape. Made of concrete, the curved roof resembles the naturally curved cliffs of the mountain above.

The entire structure is built on a steep, sloping site and was created using the traditional method of inserting stone walls into the environment. These walls form platforms and terraces that bring the dwellers closer to nature. They too emulate the cliffs above, thus reducing the visual impact of the building on the landscape.
