Moss Oaklands Residence was designed by studio Nico Van Der Meulen Architects and is located in Cape Town, South Africa. The brief of the project was aimed at remodeling a 1950s residence and giving it an urban feel. Here is how the architecture team handled this task: “Alterations and additions were made to the original building to allow for four bedrooms and large entertaining areas. The single-storey building allows for large double volume spaces and flat roofs have been used in the alteration to keep vertical expansion in mind for the client’s future.In keeping with the owner’s brief to have a home with an urban and open feel, the interior and exterior entertaining areas have been blurred by sliding stacking doors that open up the whole facade. By using a neutral palette, the company was able to create a warm environment by bringing in touches of colour through rich and bold accessories and furnishings”. How do you find this South-African display of luxury?
