“Theresa Avenue is designed to capture different perspectives of the site’s panoramic peninsula view.”
Dramatically framed by the unspoilt slopes of Table Mountain, this iconic Cape Town residence takes pride of place on Bakoven’s uppermost Atlantic-facing avenue. Comprised of three obliquely angled cantilevers, the building is designed to capture different perspectives of the site’s panoramic peninsula view, while its dynamically-stacked composition recalls the rugged beauty of the surrounding terrain.
The generously proportioned terraces resulting from the building’s unique construction create ample room for outdoor entertainment, while offering its occupants unprecedented privacy and shelter from the elements. Beneath these distinctive jutting overhangs, elegantly-edged ribbon windows wrap around the building’s façade, flooding the interiors with natural light and effortlessly bridging the inner and outer aspects of the architectural programme.
Monumental yet somehow weightless, this statement structure seems to be at once embedded in, and emerging from its craggy natural setting—serving as a fitting tribute to the timeless yet mercurial character of the Western Cape landscape.
