These clients were still living in London when we met them to discuss the renovation of their Cape Town property’s four bathrooms and kitchen.

When initially looking at the layout of the existing kitchen, we felt that the entire ground level space with its structural round columns, indoor braai and angled walls felt uncomfortable and had little and poor flow.

We therefore worked closely with an engineer to redesign this level, adding bulkheads to hide the steel structures required to open up the space, as well as creating the lighting plan and furniture layout.

The new kitchen windows were designed to work around the renovated kitchen and add a good new architectural language to the building.

The footprint of four bathrooms remained the same, except for the removal of a chimney stack in the main bathroom.

These clients have a purist nature so the bathrooms were kept simple and clean, with the addition of special features such as custom storage items inspired by Idea Group Bathrooms, who we visited at the Milan Furniture Fair last year.

In terms of finishes, we mainly used a clean white palette in combination with the new range of Caesar Stone Raw Concrete for the main bathroom vanity top.
