Luxury De Waterkant house, Cape Town by SAOTA
Cape Town-based architectural practice, SAOTA, has designed the De Waterkant project. Completed in 2013, the luxury duplex apartment is located in a trendy neighbourhood of Cape Town, South Africa.
The De Waterkant is a trendy area in the heart of Cape Town. In the day, it hosts hipsters frequenting the quaint eateries and in the evening it becomes an urbanites’ playground as fashion and art champion the nights.
According to the architects: “This was the decidedly perfect place to create a space like no other. A true Stefan Antoni space where luxury reigns and style is of the utmost importance. Antoni Associates 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 unique pieces designed by OKHA, set this luxury apartment in a category of its own. Mark Rielly, partner at Antoni Associates said that the apartment “combines contemporary living with high design.”
“We have also used every opportunity to maximise clever storage space without compromising the design,” said Michele Rhoda, partner at Antoni Associates. The tables provide storage, the bookshelves act as an installation artwork.
Additionally, the furniture was custom designed to point in the available space, ensuring fluidity 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 through the clever use of luxurious items such as the herringbone timber oor and 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, therefore less is more was the rule but still allowing for personal expression and individuality to have its place,” Court added.
