Duplex De Waterkant


This duplex apartment is part of the Mirage Development in De Waterkant, a trendy suburb located in the heart of Cape Town. ARRCC was given the brief to create a sanctuary for slickers and to create a space that captures ‘urban chic,’ combining contemporary living with high design.

The design of the apartment expresses quite a distinct African aesthetic that's current with South
Africa's demands of fast-paced city living. It's a space of calm and serenity, set floating above the
city streets of its location. The interior is a stylized and dynamic clutter-free space that is a forward-thinking, contemporary luxury urban space that maximizes spatial use, cutting edge design and technology. To define the bare spaces they conceptualized a black and white colour pallet as the base fabrics for the walls, floors, and ceilings. The concept creates a light living space with a dark bedroom cubicle cantilevered overhead. This theme of day and night reflect the way in which the apartment functions differently at various times of the day.
