Contemporary Mix of Light, Space and Geometry: La Grande Vue in South Africa
Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA) in collaboration with interior design studio OKHA have developed a massive contemporary project entitled La Grande Vue 5A residence in Cape Town, South Africa. The house is composed of two apartments, both having exceptional views of the sea below. Here is the story behind the project: “Carla & Stefan Antoni’s growing family is what forced the couple to demolish their bachelor pad and build a larger home. The result incorporates Stefan’s dual-level penthouse, including two en-suite bedrooms, a living area and a kitchen on the first level, a studio, third bedroom and garage on the lower level, and an apartment underneath. On the roof, there is a swimming pool and terrace, as well as the magnificent SKY BAR containing a cocktail bar and entertainment area”. The interiors were designed in a highly contemporary manner, taking advantage of the breathtaking vistas: “We wanted to break free from the mould, create a piece of poetry that plays on light, space and geometry, and balances the primal quality of raw surfaces with modern elements,”Stefan explained.
