To give this old beauty in central Cape Town a new lease on life, an office building was converted into 23 individual one bedroom flats. Working with the historical elements, modern units were designed to respond to the character of the building.
New elements read as a new layer, whilst remaining sympathetic to the historic aesthetics, like lead glass windows and decorative timber doors.
