First Crescent in Camps Bay near Cape Town, South Africa, designed by Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA), is an innovative architectural masterpiece. The linear arrangement of its architecture and transparent living spaces enhance the effect of the stunning ocean view.

Excellent property, being one of only three properties in Camps Bay that to be given our prestigious 6 Star ratting. Designed and furnished by Stefan Antoni, Cape Towns premier architect. 7 bedrooms all en-suite, 2 swimming. Two rim flow swimming pools with LED lighting.

Integrated Daiken VRV air-conditioning throughout. Home automation system. Alarm system with CCTV cameras & beams. Imported Poggenpohl kitchens with integrated Miele & Bosch appliances. Wireless Internet & Sat TV.

The owners brief was to design a dramatic, memorable house. The house needed to suit his specific aesthetic considerations and have the flexibility that it could be either partially or completely rented out. The client has a discerning eye for striking contemporary design and that, along with the fantastic position of the site lent, to creating an elegant response.

A double storey house was positioned centrally on the site i.e. where it starts to widen towards the north which basically cut the property in half resulting in a very large south facing front garden. As the existing house did not maximize the sites’ potential, it was entirely demolished except for the small basement area which was converted into a guest suite with special views of its own.

The challenge with the site was its shape; it is 50m long and only 20m wide (at its widest). Our response was quite striking due to its strong lines, yet created difficulties in how to accommodate all the rooms without creating a dull layout. The property not only had an existing building which needed to be demolished but it also had extensive fill above the natural ground level.
