Ocean View, in the design villa of a young single
30 October 2017
The Afro-Zen style meets contemporary elegance in a newly built apartment by Zuckerman Sachs Architects. Located along one of the most prestigious roads in Cape Town, Villa Ocean View benefits from a concrete structure in which ARRCC has completely imagined the interior space.
The client, a single from Johannesburg, wanted a contemporary interior incorporating eclectic elements with an Asian design inspiration. ARRCC gave life to his wish with this atypical villa and design.
While the elevator leads directly to an open living room and a large dining room, the kitchen extends over a large covered terrace offering magnificent views of the Atlantic coast.
To guarantee this visual shock and modern style, the flooring contrasts perfectly with the contemporary design kitchen by Assirelli. It has a central island in the form of a gray block, Neolithic with a floating wooden counter, accompanied by OKHA leather cushions leather stools, bringing a masculine touch to the space. The client's art collection has been incorporated to add character and personality to the interior.
While the custom designed ARRCC dining table resembles a redesigned herringbone floor, the rack-and-pinion lighting above it was created by David Reade.
In the living room, the fireplace has also been redesigned and coated with oxidized copper panels, providing a focal point for space. Another place, another detail with the terrace. This part is equipped with an outdoor kitchen, a dining area and a living area. The central part of the outdoor terrace consists of an infinity pool. Here, designers have incorporated a slightly raised daybed to enjoy unsurpassed views of the coastline. Around this place, a smaller landscaped garden features an outdoor shower created from a salvaged tree trunk and brass plumbing, creating a private oasis.
The night part of the villa incorporates three bedrooms each with their own unique elements. The layout of the master bedroom has been designed to allow the complete opening of the bathroom in it through sliding glass panels. The two guest rooms also have open private bathrooms. The rooms are decorated with wood cladding recovered from the back walls, with Moroccan rugs and art pieces. The wedding of the three is a clever mix of textures and colors.
Mark Rielly, director of ARRCC, says of this Ocean View villa: "The interior of this residence is relatively simple, with bold textures and varied color palettes adding richness and masculinity, creating a unique and captivating space." He adds: "The elements designed by ARRCC throughout the apartment ensure a modern and sophisticated presence while strongly reflecting the personality of the owner".
