Luxury Nettleton 199 Home, Cape Town

Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and OKHA Interiors Cape Town-based architects and interior designers have designed the Nettleton 199 house. The chic home can be found in Clifton, Cape Town, South Africa. 

According to OKHA Interiors: “The brief was to create a building that maximised the connection with the view and the sea, establish a garden that connected to the mountain side of the site and to minimise views over neighbouring buildings. The result is a contemporary South African property that provides a volumetrically dramatic and dynamic interior space on a grand scale and one that feels coupled to both the ocean and mountain elements.

“The luminous interior design creates a soft and intimate counterpoint whilst not jeopardising the dramatic and clean, geometric lines of the architecture. These contrasting décor and architectural elements harmoniously co-exist and work off each other to great effect. The canvas like slabs of pure white wall mold and delineate the interior spaces and also provide a consistent gallery feel throughout, as such art and sculpture play a pivotal role in personalizing the interior and act as an inspirational interactive catalyst between building, location and inhabitation.” Images courtesy of SAOTA.
