The pinnacle of the Vos Lane building is a three-storey penthouse apartment, with 360 degree views of De Waterkant, the city, the harbour and the mountain.
A lift provides the residents with direct access from the basement parking to all levels of the apartment. These include the living level, the mezzanine level incorporating study and media rooms, and the private bedroom level with an en suite bathroom, dressing room and a terrace overlooking Loader Street and the harbour.
‘Carefully designed with the owners’ lifestyle in mind, this apartment offers ‘layers of living’, enabling ultimate flexibility and control in an urban environment’.
On the double volume living level, elongated double doors and screens accentuate the volume of the space, while an open-plan galley-style kitchen is serviced by preparation and utility spaces, hidden from view.
A glass-enclosed conservatory with a system of vertical sliding screens for planting, provides an oasis in the city environment, which visually and acoustically buffers the apartment from the surrounding commercial buildings.
Art Deco railings, salvaged by the client served as inspiration for new elevator gates, screens and staircase balustrades, adding a nostalgic layer to this fresh contemporary space.
Carefully designed with the owners’ lifestyle in mind, this apartment offers ‘layers of living’, by means of open terraces with awnings, covered outdoor spaces and indoor living spaces with shutters to control weather, light and privacy, enabling ultimate flexibility and control in an urban environment.
