This terraced home is situated in Vredehoek and has a great view of Lion’s Head.

Our German clients were looking for a team comfortable with working in small spaces, and able to ensure functionality of all spaces. As well as having the experience to team up with another interior designer from My Place in Cape Town.

We made a change to the existing wall, including widening the entrance to the kitchen so the flow of the space would work better.

The starting point of the Townhouse Sokolka kitchen design was the walnut-look kitchen cabinetry by the German brand Niemann, alongside a focus on simple lines and achieving the right proportions. The available space was quite limiting, but with careful planning and detailed design work we were able to create a bespoke kitchen that was just what client had envisioned. The grey marble engineered stone top by Atlas Quartz adds the feel of a natural element and works well with the walnut-look cabinets.

We paid great attention to the lighting, incorporating above-counter warm LED lighting which enhances the symmetric design focused on the centre cooker.

The black and white checkerboard tiles were carefully planned and laid to ensure full tiles on the edges. We chose a modern Teka sink and a Hansgrohe sink tap with a pull-out spray, picking up the finishes of the Smeg cooker. All the other appliances were integrated to maintain the initial design’s emphasis on simplicity and clean lines within the limited kitchen space.
