ARRCC has given new life to a contemporary Cape Town home on a beautiful, treed site at the foot of Table Mountain. ARRCC’s additions fuse seamlessly with the existing architecture, originally designed by architect Antonio Zaninovic, while simultaneously enhancing a powerful connection with the surrounding landscape and magnificent city views.
The most significant architectural additions include a new garden pavilion, which replaced a small open structure, and the conversion and extension of a bedroom on the upper level to create a penthouse main suite. ARRCC redesigned the interiors throughout the main house, including the addition of an enclosed wine room. Outside, an extensive terraced lawn was added. ARRCC’s priority throughout was to harness the energy of a juxtaposition between the contemporary, clean-lined architectural forms with the powerful organic presence of the mountainside.
