The apartment that was designed by Antoni Associates, Architects (The Interior Design) and Architectural firm SAOTA (Décor), is unique in its detail and quality of finish, the spaces are restful and sophisticated and reflect a living environment that is seductive and inspired by living. In there latest project they combines elegance, luxury and sophistication in a beach front property located along one of the pristine white beaches of Cape Town.
From the architect: The Client’s brief was to renovate a ground floor double level apartment in a newly constructed luxury complex. The design of the original unit felt constricted and the Client wanted to add a fourth master bedroom suite. It was decided to reduce the size of the double volume and to increase the footprint of the apartment. Added to the brief was a wine cellar, a new study and a gym with sauna. The apartment was completely gutted and had to be re-configured throughout.
The design of the apartment complex resulted in a triangular shaped terrace wedged between the two sides of the building. The designers introduced a timber pergola that provides a shaded area as well as privacy from overlooking apartments. South African lifestyle allows for many months of outdoor living and the extensive terrace allows for areas for outdoor dining and lounging. A pool extends the entire 20m width of the terrace.
The apartment is entered on the lower ground floor where a formal entrance lobby was created by screening off the open plan kitchen. A new sleek white contemporary kitchen was integrated and flows into the formal dining and lounge area. An elegant fireplace was placed in the formal living area and overall, there is a simplicity and purity of form with a basic palette of black and white. A sensual curve staircase leads to the first floor. The master bathroom is luxuriously finished in white veined marble, chromed tap ware and stainless steel detailed vanities.
