Located on the busy Kloof Street at the foot of Table Mountain, Once in Cape Town is an all- star hotel that caters for young-at-heart travellers with a taste for adventure. It emphasises four elements that can make a visit to the Mother City a once-in-a-lifetime experience: great location, comfort, safety and good value for money.
We developed the spatial language and visual experience of the hotel to match the brand’s vision. The key was to design comfortable, welcoming and intimate spaces that encourage chance social interactions between guests.
The final interior finishes feature smoothly plastered walls painted in bold colours to convey the energy and excitement of the youth hotel. These walls create a striking contrast with others, which feature weathered timber wall cladding and furniture to create an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
