Luxury, sophistication and clean and simple modernity are just a few of the defining characteristics of a wonderful 5-story penthouse located in Cape Town. This is a project completed by the talented teams from SAOTA in collaboration with studios ARRCC and OKHA.
The natural site elevation gave the architects the opportunity to put a lot of emphasis on the beautiful views which can be admired from all five levels of this gorgeous penthouse/ private art gallery.
The team was also careful to preserve the views from the neighboring sites as well, avoiding making any modifications that would obstruct or diminish them in any way. As for this gorgeous penthouse, they gave it a terraced structure and deep overhangs, ultimately creating a structure that is able to blend into its natural surroundings and to take advantage of its location.
The main entrance into the building features a beautiful stone-clad reception area and a private lift leads up to a hallway and then a private lobby decorated with natural oak, brass accents and modern LED lighting. From there one gets to enter a double-height living area with an imposing bronze and glass staircase that offers access to the other floors.
The penthouse doubles as a private art gallery for featured artists such asC hris Soal, Chris Soal and lexandra Karakashian. It’s a magnificent display of beautiful natural materials complemented by luxury, sophistication but also simplicity. Ultimately, the interior design is a stylish combination of modern and art deco influences with an emphasis on rich finishes, elegant colors and lots of custom furniture and decorations.
