Set in the heart of Kerzner Estate, our latest project takes advantage of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean vistas. Located on the slopes of the Klein-Leeukop Mountain in Hout Bay, this project was unique in many ways. We had two of our companies work together to create a sophisticated Hout Bay home. Eurocasa installed a custom Italian kitchen while Wunders embellished the kitchen, dining room and lounge with plush furniture that compliments the overall design.
Eurocasa was approached by Lauren Bolus from Make Architects with a brief to create a kitchen that would act as a statement piece and talking point in the home. As we know, kitchens sell houses and that is no exception with this one. The primary objective of this project was to create a kitchen that would make potential buyers fall in love with the home over the other houses available on the estate. While showing her all of our Eurocasa kitchens, she was immediately drawn to the minimalism of the HT50. This composition allows for a variety of configurations including linking the island blocks with a large snack table, which allowed us to take the design a step further.Read More
The final kitchen design included a monolithic marble frame that outlines the main island. The Arabescato Carrara marble creates a sculptural addition to the kitchen which we allowed to be the hero of the space. We achieved this cleverly by choosing a simple white matt lacquer on the rest of the units. To further hero the marble centrepiece, we included LED lighting to the base of the centre island to illuminate the entire unit. We mirrored the LED lighting below all of the wall units and onto the back run. This aids in creating a warm and inviting ambience to the space.
The snack table allows for quick meals or meetings while working from home. This space came together beautifully through the addition of our Rumba Bar Stools from Wunders. The furnishings from Wunders continued into the dining room with beautiful Split Dining Chairs that surround a naturally raw timber dining table. In the living room, we included the McKinlay Sofa adjacent to two Penny Low Arm Chairs which are perfect for intimate gatherings and after-dinner conversations
Wunders’ furnishings are the perfect choice for a newly built home as it has been made to last a lifetime. The handcrafted furniture has been locally made in our Wunders factory located in Lansdowne, Cape Town. The artisans in our factory ensure the highest quality possible of each piece that they produce.
Seeing two of our companies work together on the same project to create a beautiful home makes us incredibly proud. We are excited to see our basket of offerings come together to produce a beautiful home through striking statement pieces, cosy conversational spaces and luxury Italian joinery.
