La Rotonda

La Rotonda, a lovely design challenge in manipulating a small hexagonal shaped out building, also known as the rondawel. This room in Oranjezicht, previously utilised as a home office, was transformed into a cozy, comfortable pad for a retired couple from the country. The design is characterised by the maximum use of space available incorporating the functions of lounge and dining, cooking, sleeping and office into the main space. An existing store room attached, was extended to create an en suite bathroom and walk-in dresser. Careful placement of windows and doors ensures ample natural light, ideal cross ventilation and enhances smooth circulation within. The space flows out to a lovely shaded outdoor living space, with stunning views over the city of Cape Town, ideal for those al fresco luncheons or just reading your book on those lazy weekends. This refurbishment was made possible by Maurizio Puccini and off course my lovely, open minded clients. Photographs courtesy Mat Van Niekerk, mat@viewfinderphotography.co.za
