Overlooking Cape Town’s Camps Bay, this highly contemporary, eight-bedroom villa sits proudly on an impressive cliff edge. With its gravity-defying, cantilevered pool, sweeping architecture and incredible, uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, Katharine’s highly contemporary interior design makes this one of the most impressive recent luxury interior designs in South Africa.
Designed by Katharine, the architecture of the building emphasises its spectacular location. Full-height, wrap-around glazing allows light to pour into the villa, whilst stone floors flow seamlessly from the interior to the pool and terraces. A clever, sun-reactive, shading system allows the beautifully landscaped olive and citrus tree-filled gardens to be enjoyed all year around.
Reflecting the client’s unusual creative vision, the dramatic cantilevered limestone staircase sets the tone for the villa’s interior design characterised by strong lines, contemporary furniture and neutral upholstery with colourful accents.
