Ever since featuring them here, we know that the team at Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Architects (SAOTA) is adept at creating incredible, ample, open and opulent spaces. This Victoria 73 villa, perched on a spur of land between Bantry Bay and Clifton is no exception, as it seems that every detail of the interior design is there to impress and every space is designed with leisure in mind. So, soak in the luxury of this two-level beauty with so many glazed surfaces it makes you feel like you’re sleeping free under the stars, while, in reality, you’re resting in the comfort of a glass case with superb views of the ocean. It features a wonderful two-story high living room and generous bedrooms, each an open space that includes both sleeping area and bathroom, integrated seamlessly. There is an interior garden with a perfect, deep green lawn. Art is featured prominently inside, punctuating the dynamism of the space. There is also a open lounge, which looks out over the ocean, right above an ocean-side pool. A few meters out front, a wooden deck with a couch and bed seems to levitate over the sheen of the water. The aboriginal vegetation shields the estate from prying eyes, while also allowing it to engage in direct communication with the specifics of the location.
SAOTA, a Cape Town-based practice, has gathered in its ranks some ninety exceptionally gifted architects and designers, who work under the guidance of Stefan, Antoni and Olmesdahl. The company also has an interior design branch, whose attention to detail and strict attention granted to the production process yields remarkable results. Case in point, the Victoria 73 residence, a perfect hideout for summer months spent recharging, swimming, lounging and generally pampering oneself, in perfect style and elegance.
