Location: Barley Beach, Cape Town
Program: Interior design

Area: 250sqm each
Set in trendy Camps Bay, the twin beach penthouses are designed to be decadent and witty at client’s request.
Care were taken to ensure the brief, with themes such as the Shanghai Room and Moroccan Room, are not interpreted with a decorative approach, but with a clear conceptual and architectural intervention.
The Shanghai Room, for example, was a translation of the Chinese vernacular elements into a sparse space with a built-in timber bed and an exposed hanging rail for cloth . Each room were examined in such manner to produce contemporary spaces with a twist of surprise in their details.
