Gripping the edge of the cliff in Signal Hill, Cape Town, Head Road 1943 has been re-furbished by Antoni Associates as a commissioned project of a SAOTA designed house. The clients wished to have a cutting edge 21st Century residence that incorporates the use of luxurious and tailored finishes. The clients also desired two additional children’s rooms, a gym and a home cinema to be added into the design scheme. The designers had to take into consideration the pool terrace to allow for entertainment as well as to capture the spectacular city views.
Here is a description of the project renovation, “the furniture selection and decor is a combination of bespoke pieces and imported branded furniture. Adjacent to the open plan living and dining room is the bar containing a custom-designed humidor for an extensive cigar collection. The kitchen is finished in high gloss white lacquered units with Volakas marble counter tops.
The outdoor entertainment area has been designed to facilitate a multitude of entertainment functions and includes a gazebo pavilion, outdoor dining and grill area as well as relaxation for sunseekers. The pool gazebo has been constructed mainly of Iroko timber and has a raised deck with concealed strip lighting. In contrast to the white Volakas floor, black Nero Maraquino marble has been used to clad a cantilevered fireplace shelf which extends over the pool edge. Sumptuous upholstery adds to the sexy comfort of this outdoor room. The infinity pool allows the eye to flow to the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.” Via
