Honouring the Curators of the Cape

A CIfA 2023 Awards Round-Up

In celebration of the Cape’s most impressive projects between 2021 and 2022, The Cape Institute for Architecture (CIfA) held its biennial awards ceremony on Wednesday, 4th October 2023. CIfA highly values and prioritises advocating for better environments, preserving heritage buildings, and committing to sustainability in the architectural sector, and the winning projects ticked all these boxes. Bomax received a CIfA Commendation for Architecture for House Llandudno in recognition of noteworthy contributions to architecture.

House Llandudno

by Bomax Architects

At House Llandudno, one is met by contemporary architecture, a form of clean-cut concrete tapered structure that captures uninterrupted views of the ocean from the living spaces. The living room flows out towards a rim-flow pool and a roof garden, which creates a two-part division into the main house and an annexe whilst creating a great breakdown of scale between the two parts of the house. A sense of minimalism is picked up as one journeys through the spaces, from the house’s materiality to how it sits within its landscape. The immediate links between inside and outside create a great sense of play with scale, which is experienced throughout the whole house.
