The Bridge House was designed by Van Der merwe Miszewski Architects and is located  in City Bowl, an area of Cape Town, South Africa. Here is the official project description from the architects: “The site slopes, in places steeply, from Glen Avenue down towards the North. There are views of Table Mountain, Devils Peak, Lions Head and Signal Hill, the adjacent Pine forest, the City, the Harbour, the Atlantic Ocean, and beyond. At the uppermost end of the site, a bridge was placed across the Donga, allowing the Donga to remain below. A pool and stream, flowing to a pond, were inserted into the dry riverbed. The flow of water is dammed by the POOL, then runs freely in the stream and settles in the pond at the base of the site. Intensive planting will regenerate the garden. Found pathways and steps have been reinstated and added to. The Bridge is the “Main House” (site 1); containing entry, living spaces and main bedrooms. Adjacent to the bridge are the Garage and Guest quarters (site 2). At the base of the site, the Donga House (for visitors) spans over the pond (site 3)“. The impressive villa is up for rent here all year long, with prices ranging from $ 700 to $ 2,700 per night.
