Urban Man Cave in Cape Town, South Africa by Inhouse Brand Architects

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Inhouse Brand Architects 

What can only be described as the ultimate “man cave”, Inhouse Brand Architects has converted the unused lounge area of a Fresnaye residence into an industrial-inspired dream pad for the family’s lucky teenage boy and his friends.

Taking into account the youngster’s various interests such as skating, surfing and socialising, the Inhouse team aimed to create a trendy, multifunctional space. The project was steered by Creative Director Aidan Hart, and senior designer Jenine Bruce, who chose a modern industrial aesthetic for this youthful interior.

Silverhurst in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: SAOTA 

This home is a contemporary reboot of the more classical architectural styles, surrounding it in one of Cape Town’s exclusive gated estates in the winelands suburb of Constantia. Set in a tailored parkland garden, the facade is Georgian inspired but the modern aspect of the look is driven by a dynamic of recessed and projecting panels and cubes that create courtyards and terraces that articulate and add interest to what is a highly organised shell. Inside, it’s no less organised but it becomes a story of sculpted space and secret luxury. VIVID Architects prepared the initial concept. SAOTA and ARRCC were then appointed to refine & develop the design and oversee the project to completion.

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Article source: SAOTA 

The Brief was to create a spectacular home which encapsulated the expansive 360 degree mountain and sea views.  Though views out were paramount this needed to be carefully balanced with the required privacy from within.  The living areas were to be open plan – enhancing everyday life.  “The architecture needed focus on creating a contemporary, uncluttered and sculptural building,” said Tamaryn Fourie, senior associate and project team member.

The site is excellently positioned on the mountain ridge below Lions Head with views of Robben Island to the North and Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles to the South.
