Architecture becomes a series of piers which connect the land to the sea.

CONCEPTUAL PRINCIPLES:
1. A series of lightweight piers which extend from the mountain behind towards the sea encapsulating the essence of the Hout Bay wharf.
2. Hout Bay was traditionally a plantation where timber was extracted for boat construction. The materiality of the design must capture this spirit.
3. The piers becomes a series of formal and spatial elements maximising views towards the ocean and the mountain.
