The outstanding interior design project of Aupiais House was undertaken by the Cape Town practice of Site Interior Design on a newly purchased property, located in the affluent Cape Town suburb of Camps Bay. The designers were fortunate to have a blank canvas and the full support of the clients when transforming the bare shell into a stunning seaside retreat.

With the spectacular views of the mountains and nearby beach, it was decided that a neutral colour palette balanced by dark accents would complement the space. Rather than design a conventional beach house feel, the designers created an elegant interior furnished with carefully chosen pieces from domestic and international designers. A defining feature throughout the space is the custom made cabinets and bedroom furniture in sustainable timber.

The basement area was converted to an entertaining space, dubbed ‘Legend Room’ by the clients, with bespoke furniture carefully designed to fit the unusual configuration of the walls. Finally, the house became a home with the addition of a selection of woven rugs and throws, individually chosen lamps and light fittings and ample scope for the owners to add their own personal touch regarding the artwork and personal objects!
