A luxury seaside home has undergone a complete architectural renovation and extension by Bomax Architects in collaboration with OKHA Interior Architecture. This spectacular dwelling is called “La Belle Vue”, located in the small beachfront community of Llandudno near Cape Town in South Africa.

The house was to provide a place of sanctuary and repose from the fast-paced life of an international executive of African descent. From its elevated position, the house boasts mesmerizing views of both mountain and ocean which are visible from every aspect of the house.

There are extensive balconies and terraces both at the front and back of this dwelling, while expansive glazing frames the mountain and sea views from the interior.

The front of the property literally unzips across the entire front façade allowing direct access from the dining, living, entertainment, and master bedroom to the exterior on both levels.

The OKHA designed three dimensional, sculpted and carved front door was inspired by traditional African motifs and sculpture and sets the tone for further contemporary interpretations found throughout the interior.

Although the architecture expresses a modern, almost minimalist aesthetic, the client wished to express his African heritage through elements of the interior; subsequently, much of the furniture items were custom-designed to subtly articulate African modernism and luxury.

What We Love: This luxury seaside home offers a vibrant, dynamic connection between the minimalist aesthetic and African luxury, resulting in nothing short of spectacular. The mix of African earth-inspired tones, geometry, and curves adds a unique retro aesthetic to this fascinating dwelling. Overall this home has a very appealing design and dramatic views that would make anyone feel right at home!

The ground floor formal lounge area is soothing in its chalky monochromatic palette, allowing natural light to sculpt and enhance the interior architecture and stucco walls.

The entertainment level which houses the home’s audiovisual home cinema system is a more vibrant experience with rich African earth-inspired colors, custom graphic rugs, a classic retro feel gives the upper level a distinct attitude.

The furniture uses strong lines, clean forms, and materials such as etched raw oak, vintage leather, satin brass, and granite to create a timeless elegance.
