From the article:
"A South African family who had been living in London for years returned to South Africa to build their dream home. Together with architect Antonio Zaninovic they created a stunning house on a piece of land in the neighborhood of Tamboerskloof, on the slopes of Lionís Head mountain overlooking Cape Town. The design was inspired by the Case Study Houses, the experiments in California to design and build inexpensive and efficient model homes for the United States residential housing boom caused by the end of World War II and the return of millions of soldiers. For the decoration mid-century modern furniture pieces and accessories where used."
Interesting. Except for the depressing kitchen, I like the design of the house and what I can see of the layout. But concrete floors, hell no. Ugly stained-looking drop ceilings, UGH.
But the library and reading corner are great. I like a lot of the furniture, and there's a funny little sense of humor at work--the librarian painting is charmingly odd, and I love the fugly thrift store lamps and the cat in the shower. Nice exhibitionist bathroom, too.

The bathtub next to a glass wall? I don't think so.
