The homeowner worked closely with design firm Establishment to create the vibrant living environment
Inside a Functional and Joyful Home Filled with Objects d’art in Cape Town
By Anji Connell
It was a decision to relocate from India to Mauritius in 2016 that led to the homeowner’s serendipitous move to Cape Town. This was a city the homeowner knew well from his business travels for over twenty years, and he had fallen in love with everything it had to offer – a thriving art scene, world class restaurants, all surrounded by stunning nature and the oceans. In addition, the fabulous beaches, exquisite wine estates, and the good friends he’d made over the years were a big draw.
With the seed planted, his search for the perfect home began. The owner was on a business trip in Milan when he received plans from his realtor on a new apartment complex being built in Sea Point, with spectacular views of Lions Head Mountain. This offered ample room for guests, great views and space for a remote office (Mauritius was still on the cards as his main working base). He proceeded to successfully secure a ground floor unit with a garden facing the communal gardens within the gracefully curving building. The next step was finding an interior designer. A friend whose taste he admired recommended Dawid Augustyn, the founder and managing director of Establishment. The two of them hit it off, and the planning began.
