Luxurious single loved ones residence designed by Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and Antoni Associates situated in a trendy location in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa.
De Waterkant is a trendy location in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa. In the day, it hosts cool-hunting hipsters frequenting impossibly quaint eateries and in the evening it becomes the urbanites playground as style and art champion the nights.
This was the decidedly ideal spot to produce a space like no other. A correct Stefan Antoni space exactly where luxury reigns and style is of the utmost value. Antoni Associates (AA) Interiors and OKHA Interiors ensured this tall order materialised.
Renowned for its contemporary take on African luxury, AA Interior’s distinctive style paired with the distinctive pieces made by OKHA, set this apartment in a category of its personal. Mark Rielly, partner at Antoni Associates said that the apartment “ combines contemporary living with high design”.
The rms wanted to represent contemporary, urban Africa and Rielly noted that there is a strong emphasis on rhythm, geometric forms and graphic components. They wanted artwork and interiors that explored the avant gardist graphic of the interior architecture and introduced colour. Adam Court, companion at OKHA, played with a fusion of modern African graphic and colour to juxtapose the lean, monochromatic interior. “We wanted really restricted accessories and one significant artwork, not wanting to overload the space or the senses,” Court noted. Urban living comes with handful of but denite obstacles such as space, challenging any aesthetic idealism as function requirements to meet kind.
Here, innovation meets true purpose as Court made multi-use and bespoke furniture which can hide all the clutter accumulated in any property.
“We have also used every opportunity to maximise clever storage space with out compromising the design” commented Michele Rhoda, partner at Antoni Associates. The tables give storage, the bookshelves act as an installation artwork.
Additionally, the furnishings was custom created to t in the obtainable space, making sure uidity and circulation.
To be aesthetically astute and edit a space does not mean to say any expense was spared. Rielly noted that they infused the space with a sense of opulence via the clever use of luxurious nishes such as the herringbone timber oor and the feature marble accents.
This clever use of space, art and design has transformed this penthouse into a sanctuary for city-slickers. “The interior needed to be a place of calm and serenity, as a result less is much more was the rule but still permitting for individual expression and individuality to have its location,” Court noted.
