Modern Composition of normal Forms: Cape Town’s Luxurious POD Boutique Hotel

Discretion and style are the primary characteristics subtly promoted by the POD boutique Hotel, an opulent accommodation unit completed in 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa. Envisioned by Greg WrightArchitects, the project is conveniently positioned in order that all its 15 rooms have extensive views over one or two of the next landmarks: Camps Bay Beach, Table Mountain, Lions Head or the 12 Apostles.
Some of the features of the design language used to individualize the POD hotel are listed by the architects: “the 2-storey high privacy fins at the penthouse suites, the doorway screen and have wall that’s composed of scaffold planks recycled from the building site itself, the organic shaped bar with its cantilevered ice wells, the tensioned stainless-steel screen within the stairwell that stretches between 4 vertical floors after which the timber alcoves that hold the beds and bathing areas“. Each room is defined by an open space layout, with a colour palette deriving from materials equivalent to slate, timber and granite. Appreciate the result?
