DeWet34_Saota Architects #interiors #views #residential #architecture #arhitektura+ (1)

Ok. here I go again with beautiful residential architecture by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects & OKHA Interiors. Views that go on forever anchored by the raw textures of concrete, rock and timber. Dramatic volumes defining open plan living areas. Bespoke furniture and high end finishes. A pool terrace that taunts the view and a master bedroom suite that rivals any 5 star resort. Sensual and sensational, definitely a statement home. You’ll find me on the terrace indulging in the view and some sunshine.

Architecture | Ramat Hasharon House | Levy Chamizer Architects


This bright and breezy contemporary home by Levy:Chamizer Architects is located in Ramat Hasharon, on the central coast of Israel. This house is both sleek and refined, but the most impressive is the smoothness of the stucture of glass doors that brings lightness to the house.

Architecture: Clifton View SOATA

 Soata Residential Architecture

Perched over dramatic boulders with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Twelve Apostles mountain range, this double-level apartment in Clifton, Cape Town, South African has been stripped and reconfigured to create the ultimate luxury pad. Cocktail bar, wine cellar, cinema room, gym, bespoke detailing, extensive art collection and an infinity pool to match the view … check! Another amazing project that could only be by Antoni Associates, who blow me away with their residential architecture every time.

Architecture: Double Bay House


It is something about Sydney terrace renovations that I fall in love with everytime. . and hope I can own one, one day. What was once a narrow, dark terrace house in Sydney’s Double Bay has been transformed into a home characterized by the interplay of volumes, planes and light. The main focus for architects Tobias Partners in transforming the four-metre-wide property into a family home for its client was to introduce much-needed natural light into the centre of the site with an elegant architectural insertion. Heritage constraints meant the late-nineteenth-century facade had to be retained in its original form and that there could not be any newly built elements visible from the street.

Architecture | Lemperle Residence | Jonathan Segal


Project: Lemperle Residence| Architects: Jonathan Segal | Location: La Jolla, , United States

The Lemperle residence is one of these rare exceptions.  Designed by Jonathan Segal FAIA, this ocean front residence promotes an outdoor connection through the use of expansive glass and deck areas.  The house focuses outward away from the street onto the ocean, capruting amazing views.

Travel Thursday | The Almyra Hotel | Cyprus

High quality craftsmanship and an aversion to last minute trendiness guide the clean, terraced architecture of Cyprus’s Almyra Hotel. Following a major renovation by Thanos Michaelides, the hotel has undergone an ultra-chic metamorphosis and now features sleek interior elegance inspired by the island’s patron goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite. Banquette sofas and low irokko and oak wood tables face windows that afford the first glimpse of the breathtaking ocean views available throughout Almyra. Sleek modern furniture and black and white interiors have been selected by Tristan Auer and Joelle Pleot, who designed one of Karl Lagerfeld’s houses, vamped up by hand-assembled Byzantine chandeliers that hang in both the lobby and the Mosaics restaurant. Splashes of 1970s boldness – such as white leather sofas and ottomans – are enhanced by a combination of natural and artificial lighting. Seeing as the hotel places as much emphasis on a successful family experience as on good design, the concept also focuses on practicality. All of Almyra’s guestrooms and suites are generous in size, so as to provide ample space for families – who will most certainly also appreciate the Almyra’s two freshwater pools, both built with Italian slate. Auer and Pleot have selected lots of natural materials in addition to glass and Carrara marble to create a calming effect in the rooms. Charming small details such as room numbers engraved on the floors are enhanced further by the freedom of guest’s being encouraged to move around the artworks on display at whim. Wide terraces, covered with glowing white trellises surround the pool area and afford sweeping views of Paphos harbour. The landscaped gardens with lavender walkways surrounding the design hotel complete the picture perfect setting. Given the stunning results of the makeover, it is indeed surprising that this is Pleot’s first ever hotel project – but one for which her collaborator Tristan Auer and her have already earned oodles of industry praise. Rest assured, your praise is bound to follow.

Architecture | Nettleton 198 | SAOTA


Project: Nettleton 198 | Architects: Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA) | Location: Clifton, Cape Town, South Africa| Compleated: 2011

The clients, a British couple living in Cape Town, requested a six-bedroom, seven-level home that makes the most of the site, the views and the mountain. The lower levels of the existing structure were totally remodelled while the upper level was demolished to allow for two new levels.

The site enjoys spectacular views and these views and the impact of the sun were key informants contributing to the overall design. The living room can open up onto the west and the east completely, giving it the feeling of an open pavilion.
