Drawn to this historic Italianate residence, a landmark in Capitol Hill’s Harvard-Belmont Historical District, the new owners knew they needed a design firm that would respect the home’s historic exterior yet bring a modern sensibility to the interiors, which had long ago been compromised through a series of ill-conceived remodels.

OKHA’s latest interior project, Clifton 301, is a seasonal two-bedroom apartment in a sophisticated contemporary complex designed by SAOTA. Flanked on either side by Table Mountain’s legendary Twelve Apostles, it looks out over breath-taking panoramic views of the Cape Atlantic Ocean and is in equal parts luxurious getaway, relaxed coastal retreat and entertainer’s dream.

Villa Emma designed by Mario Mazzer Architects melts the rigour of a “Stazzu”, the local rural buildings, with the modern house principles of open floor plans and connection between outdoor and indoor spaces. It recalls the Sardinian rural house both in the simple rectangular shape with pitched roof and the interior distribution with bedrooms on the longest side. Photography by Filippo Bamberghi

Perched just above the blue expanse of the Atlantic Ocean in Clifton, Cape Town, this opulent yet timelessly elegant two-level ground floor apartment boasts a perfect balance between luxury and comfort. The total redesign in terms of interior architecture together with the décor furnishings, it embodies and reflects the clients love of travel in an understated and individual way. ARRCC worked with a neutral colour palette throughout the generous double volume space, allowing the majestic blue of the ocean and the sky to be the only colours that pour in through the glass expanse.
Benguela is a residences completed by ARRCC in collaboration with SAOTA. Nature pervades the house –the seamless flow of internal floors and ceilings out into external living spaces is mirrored by the fynbos planting which stalks the edges of the internal envelope, enfolds the terraces and decks and seeps into the garden courtyard.
