Impressive Beachfront Property Renovation in Cape Town by ANTONI ASSOCIATES

ANTONI ASSOCIATES’, the internal Design and Décor division of the long-lasting architectural firm SAOTA, latest project combines elegance and sophistication in a beachfront property located along one of the vital pristine white beaches of Cape Town, South Africa. The Client’s brief was to renovate a ground floor double level apartment in a newly constructed luxury complex. The apartment is entered at the lower ground floor where a proper entrance lobby was created by screening off the open plan kitchen. Here the designers introduced a screen wall with an enlarged portal window to create a view into the apartment.
Despite reducing the scale of the prevailing double volume a number of this was retained within the entrance hall that is enclosed by frameless glass. a brand new sleek white contemporary kitchen was integrated and flows into the formal dining and lounge area. A classy fireplace was placed within the formal living area and overall, there’s a simplicity and purity of form with a basic palette of black and white. An eclectic mixture of bespoke furniture and the situation of the Clients’ selection of South African art and sculpture gives the internal a curated experience.
