OKHA’s latest interior project, Clifton 301, is a seasonal two-bedroom apartment in a sophisticated
contemporary complex designed by SAOTA. Flanked on either side by Table Mountain’s legendary

Twelve Apostles, it looks out over breath-taking panoramic views of the Cape Atlantic Ocean and is in equal parts luxurious getaway, relaxed coastal retreat and entertainer’s dream.

The architects designed the complex with deliberately pared-down, monochromatic interior shells.
Not only was OKHA responsible for the interior decoration, but also designed key items of bespoke handmade furniture throughout the apartment.

“Our first objective was to individualise the space by modulating the internal colour palette,” says
OKHA director Adam Court. He and the OKHA team set about customizing the apartment’s interiors to create a cool and restful space in contrast to the bright, sunlit exterior. “The panoramic exterior allows you to feel as though you are hovering right above the water’s surface.” – Adam Court

The client, a New York based businessman who gave OKHA complete carte blanche says, “Cape
Town is the perfect mix of stunning nature, great outdoor activities, a world-renowned design and art scene, top tier restaurants and winelands, providing an unrivalled value for money when compared to other global destinations. Cape Town attracts diverse, talented, creative and professional people to its shores, the foundation of what makes Cape Town so attractive to live in.”

Table Mountain’s famous granite, fynbos and dappled woods are evoked throughout the apartment in a rich, raw palette of natural timbers, stones and metals, which are contrasted with plush velvets and linens on the walls, floors and furniture coverings, resulting in what Court refers to as a contemporary “quiet opulence”.
