The great view of La Grande Vue 5A by SAOTA

Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA) and OKHA has captured the true beauty of Cape Town in their La Grande Vue 5A project with beautiful lines and world class design.

La Grande Vue 5A embraces the spectacular views of the ocean and incorporates it into the home by using world class design

Prompted by their expanding family, Carla and Stefan Antoni, demolished their bachelor pad and set out to create a breathtaking home. The result incorporated Stefan’s dual-level penthouse, two en-suite bathrooms, a living area and a kitchen on the first level, a studio, third bedroom and garage on the lower level with an apartment underneath. A swimming pool and terrace on the roof boasts with spectacular views and from the Sky Bar these views takes your breath away. The Sky Bar contains a cocktail bar and entertainment area.

The interiors are turned in a visual delight by Stefan’s bold control of levels and layering. The apartment is a mixture of laid-back comfort and slick sophistication, hence the marble slabs on the floors and the lime-washed wood which contrast the marble with a more “beachy-feel.” Further enhancing this is the accent colours which were kept to greys and aquamarines.

OKHA Interiors’ Adam Court used the Antoni home as a canvas to create a range of furniture. “We wanted to create a relaxed but sophisticated look; one that was not only about individual pieces but about creating a totally new experience,” Court had said.

The result is a further testament to the contrast created by Stefan, it is functional yet eye-catching. White leather sofas standing alongside ethnic pieces found on exoctic travels. There are David Reade glass pieces sitting alongside stacked cubic frames, together with cashmere throws and deep pile rugs.

“We wanted to break free from the mould, create a piece of poetry that plays on light, space and geometry, and balances the primal quality of raw surfaces with modern elements,” Stefan concludes.
