Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and Antoni Associates designed this home, St Leon 10, for a family. The goal was to create a space for casual, intimate family occasions or large get togethers. The view from the house looks out over the 12 Apostle Mountains and the Bay. This home is located in Bantry Bay, Cape Town.
The building is cut into the slope with approximately 50% of its rear face below the natural ground level. The upper level floats over the essentially glazed South West facing first floor and this exaggerates the height of the building relative to the adjacent ground level.
ANTONI ASSOCIATES were appointed as the interior decorators. On the entrance living level the interiors are kept to a neutral palette with a subtle play on texture in materials and fabric selected. Soft cream leathers and weathered timber finishes layer the interior with luxurious elements. The overall feel is warm and inviting.
