About the Estate: Text from Signature Sibaya
The site is a remarkable piece of land in KwaZulu Natal, providing breathtaking panoramas of the Indian Ocean as viewed from within a matrix of the reinstate natural coastal forest that was endemic to these slopes prior to clearance for sugar cane farming. Signature is on the seaward side of the M4 [highway] and looks down on this majestic ocean from the rolling hills that preside over the coastal town of Umdloti.
Sibaya is a precint of more than 1000 hectares stretching from the Ohlanga River in the south to the uMdloti River in the north, between the ocean and the N2 [highway]. Sibaya is destined to become one of the most sought-after destinations in the country, offering a way of life unlike anything else.

Residents will be able to access uMdloti beaches via pedestrian access. Boardwalks will be constructed through the forest down to the beach to the south of uMdloti.
About the Design: Text from Bomax Architects
Signature Sibaya has an undulating topography which allows views of the ocean throughout the estate.
Designed within a natural coastal forest with uninterrupted sea views. An elegant bevel edged concrete roof slab creates a lighter roof balancing the weight of horizontal forms. Social wings on three levels are integrated with a connected spiral staircase. The cantilevered slabs blur the lines over the inside and outside spaces, creating a seamless space for entertainment and relaxation.
A concealed approach and sense of arrival for the guests, as well as a hidden garage basement for four cars which is accessed by a ramp adds to the tranquil and minimalist form.
There is a consistent use of natural materials such as concrete, glass and stone which is used with other natural accents while sliding timber sun screens that protect from the early morning East light compliment this minimal natural material palette.
Stand 20 of Signature Sibaya is a bespoke and unique design to suit our client’s needs and personality. This resolved and automated home is designed to provide wellness, healing, contemplation and reflection.
