This stunning mid-century contemporary home is located in Cape Town and redesigned to be a vacation home
Antonio Zaninovic Architecture Studio in South Africa has renovated an old house building circa 1960s in Cape Town and designed by an architect named Tara Bean. The house was modified by expanding the outside area in order to get the beauty of the surrounding scenery, namely the amazing expanse of the sea.
This building is named Icaria House, a tall building with four floors. This building functions as a vacation home for people born in South Africa but have left their place of origin and settled in New York.
the architect team made the building in the coastal rock zone by creating two new terrace areas on the edge of the hill. The new outdoor swimming pool slightly drops to between eight meters down,.
the owner can also relax for a moment to unwind in the terrace area but also enjoy a meal there.
although adding some components, this building also retains the original building and all of it is very synergistic.
The entry point is installed on the west side of the building and one track on the north side. Large windows are applied to the west and south of the building. The installation of this large window is intended so that an amazing view can be seen there. the walls on the inside have been demolished by a team of architects, this aims to create the impression that this area looks spacious and also that the incoming light will be maximized.
the inner walls are given a white color to add to the impression and also combine with the color of the gray floor and some are white. This color selection adds harmony to this house. The bathroom is designed using a slightly greenish blue color combined with a beautiful white color. The kitchen section is equipped with a storage area that has been repainted to a gray color. This very contrasting combination of interior designs also adds to the harmony in this room.
when you see this building and enter it, the view will be on the living room area. The focus there is a large window in the corner of the room, a warm fireplace, a comfortable seat in blue. The style of this building combines with designs from all over Africa. An example of its application is a grass carpet from Swaziland covered with strong red berber in the living room area.
