ARRCC is an Interior Design and Décor studio, closely connected to the architectural firm SAOTA. A reputation for creating exclusive interiors in South Africa as well as international locations, ARRCC constructs exclusive spaces in both public and private sectors.
With ARRCC’s elegant technique in mind, the new owners of Head Road 1843 in Fresnaye, Cape Town approached the firm to strip and refurbish the old house into a luxurious home of their own. The project’s focus was to create a modern home while taking into account its breath-taking view of Signal Hill. As a result, the home is a balance between luxury and tranquility, creating the perfect residence for the location.
The house blends naturally with the property, yet its modern features create a dignified atmosphere. The architecture of the house is a cubist form, contrasting with the natural environment in which it dwells. Since the house was custom designed, it became a challenge for the designers to incorporate certain features. When keeping in mind the overall expectations, intense design consideration for particular sectors of the house was essential. ARRCC’s expertise in design and development allowed the new home to be modified perfectly within its surroundings.
The project was full of contradictory, yet complementary techniques. While the vertical and horizontal architecture enhance the outside of the house, the interior is cultivated by balanced light and design. The abstract designs and intricate patterns focus on modern essence, while still capturing the infinite view of the ocean. Deepening the home’s elegance, the small details flow with the innovative architecture, capturing the present moment.
Project Head Road became a complete masterpiece, but in order to get there, every installation had to be thoroughly considered in order to comply with the custom design. Among other features, the eloquent onyx fireplaces and dramatic fiber optic lighting were particularly challenging for ARRCC to execute. While the fireplaces had to be suspended by a glass substructure, each fiber in the fiber optic ceiling had to be pulled through manually. Although difficult, ARRCC’s skills allowed each piece to be completed as imagined.
In addition to the modern architecture and expansive views, the home was created to be an entertainment space as well. The inside has a plethora of enticement such as the home theatre and the innovative children rooms, but the outside is an entertainment area of its own. The exterior not only offers leisure activities, but also creates a mood of harmony as the infinity pool allows the eye to settle onto the ocean. From a relaxing day at home to a cocktail party, the expansive space and relaxing atmosphere is an automatic attraction for both personal comfort and social gatherings.
Project Head Road reflects ARRCC’S signature craftsmanship with the home’s innovative design and personalized features. Following the homeowner’s ideal style of the house, the firm added touches of its own, furthering the contemporary concept. When designing the distinct architecture, ARRCC incorporated the house’s location and the homeowner’s luxurious standards as well. In effect, Head Road 1843 embodies a modern, luxurious home.
