Description: The aim with this interior was to evolve the original design. A more subtle approach was adopted to make the necessary contextual shift. The glass sliding doors and minimal wall space posed a challenge for the placement of mirror units. However, by allowing the Cape Town skies to form a backdrop, the natural light of the environment was exploited. Wing-like bulkheads lend a sense of flight while the presence of heavy wood contrasts with the white walls and décor to create an environment that is modern, yet unyielding.
