De Waterkant Apartment by ARRCC
Those who think contemporary interiors are all stark minimalism with neutral colours should take a look at this gem of an apartment in Cape Town.
The architects ARRCC optimised the small 65 square metre space with clever features such as tucking the kitchen below the stairs and creating a glass bridge jutting off the mezzanine. Above all, we love the use of bold geometric graphics in the rug, cushions, artwork and bedroom wall, which adds a sense of dynamism and visual interest without detracting from the very masculine appeal of the space.
