TOP BILLING APPROACHED ANTONI ASSOCIATES AND OKHA TO TRANSFORM A DUPLEX APARTMENT IN DE WATERKANT FOR THEIR EXCLUSIVE DREAM HOME COMPETITION.

THIS TRENDY SUBURB IS LOCATED IN THE HEART OF CAPE TOWN AND IN THE DAY,

HOSTS COOL-HUNTING HIPSTERS FREQUENTING IMPOSSIBLY QUAINT EATERIES AND IN THE EVENING IT BECOMES THE URBANITES PLAYGROUND AS FASHION AND ART CHAMPION THE NIGHTS. THE BRIEF WAS TO CREATE A SANCTUARY FOR THE COMPETITION WINNERS, AND TO CRAFT A SPACE THAT CAPTURES ‘TOP BILLING CHIC’. THIS WAS REALISED THROUGH THE JUXTAPOSITION OF BESPOKE, CLEAN-LINED FURNITURE IN A NEUTRAL COLOUR PALETTE WITH COLOURFUL ARTWORK AND STRONG GRAPHICAL INFLUENCES.

“…Combines contemporary living with high design”. THE LOWER LIVING LEVEL FEATURES A SEAMLESS SPATIAL FLOW BETWEEN THE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM ONTO THE TERRACE WITH UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS OF CAPE TOWN’S CITYSCAPE AND TABLE MOUNTAIN.

DE WATERKANT

“The interior needed to be a place of calm and serenity, therefore less is more was the rule but still allowing for personal expression and individuality to have its place,” THE KITCHEN DESIGN INCORPORATES A CARELINE KITCHEN FINISHED IN WHITE DUCO WHICH HAS BEEN MATCHED WITH WHITE MIELE APPLIANCES, OPENING UP THE SPACE. BY CLEVERLY TUCKING THE KITCHEN UNDERNEATH THE STAIRCASE AND HAVING THE CENTRE KITCHEN ISLAND DOUBLE UP AS A BAR AND A DINING TABLE, THE MULTI-FUNCTIONAL LOWER LEVEL CAN BE USED BOTH PRACTICALLY AND FOR ENTERTAINMENT.

“We wanted very limited accessories and one major artwork, not wanting to overload the space.”

THERE IS A STRONG EMPHASIS ON RHYTHM, GEOMETRIC FORMS AND GRAPHIC ELEMENTS THAT ARE REFLECTIVE OF MODERN PATTERNS. THE GENERAL COLOUR PALLET IS KEPT CRISP AND MONOCHROMATIC FOR A CLEAN AND UNCLUTTERED LOOK AND FEEL. THIS IS WARMED UP WITH A BEAUTIFUL DARK WOOD PARQUET FLOORING AND AGAIN THE TIMBER IS PICKED UP IN THE ANGULAR GRAPHIC SCREEN USED BEHIND THE BEDROOM WALL TO SEPARATE THE DRESSING ROOM EN-SUITE. THE PARQUET FLOORING, CONCEALED LED LIGHTING AND DÉCOR ITEMS BRING THE ADDED DIMENSION OF WARMTH INTO THE SPACE.

“... fusion of modern African graphic and colour juxtaposes the lean, monochromatic interior.” THE DESIGN OF THE DUPLEX APARTMENT EXPRESSES A DISTINCTLY MODERN AFRICAN ATTITUDE THAT IS CURRENT WITH TODAY’S DEMANDS OF FAST-PACED CITY LIVING. THE APARTMENT IS A SPACE OF CALM AND SERENITY FOR RE-ENERGISING, RELAXING WITHIN, FLOATING ABOVE THE CITY STREETS OF ITS LOCATION

“… There is a strong emphasis on rhythm, geometric forms and graphic elements representing modern, urban Africa.” URBAN LIVING COMES WITH FEW BUT DEFINITE OBSTACLES SUCH AS SPACE, CHALLENGING ANY AESTHETIC IDEALISM AS FUNCTION NEEDS TO MEET FORM. HERE, INNOVATION MEETS TRUE PURPOSE AS MULTI-USE AND BESPOKE FURNITURE PIECES WERE DESIGNED TO HIDE ALL THE CLUTTER ACCUMULATED IN ANY HOME.

“… the space is infused with a sense of opulence through the clever use of luxurious finishes.” THE MASTER DRESSING ROOM AND EN-SUITE BATHROOM FLOW SEAMLESSLY TOGETHER AS A DARK, ‘MOODY’ SANCTUARY FOR BATHING AND DRESSING.
