Clifton 301, An OKHA Interior Project In Cape Town, South Africa.

Join us on a house tour as we take in the amazing views of CLIFTON 301 – a place where the sea and interior style meet.

CLIFTON 301 is a seasonal two-bedroom apartment in a sophisticated contemporary complex designed by SAOTA. Flanked on either side by Table Mountain’s legendary Twelve Apostles, it looks out over breath-taking panoramic views of the Cape Atlantic Ocean. The panoramic exterior allows you to feel as though you are hovering right above the water’s surface.


Not only was OKHA responsible for the interior decoration, but also designed key items of bespoke handmade furniture throughout the apartment.

“Our first objective was to individualise the space by modulating the internal colour palette,” says Creative Director, Adam Court. He and the OKHA team set about customising the apartment’s interiors to create a cool and restful space in contrast to the bright, sunlit exterior.


“We used subtle shades of green with delicate natural tonalities that reference the local landscape,” says Court. Table Mountain’s famous granite, fynbos and dappled woods are evoked throughout the apartment in a rich, raw palette of natural timbers, stones and metals, which are contrasted with plush velvets and linens on the walls, floors and furniture coverings, resulting in what Court refers to as a contemporary “quiet opulence”.


These shades are repeated in the furniture with a strong emphasis on textures and materials. When it came to designing the custom furniture pieces, the designs are pared-back and lean, focussing on strong forms and shapes that communicate simply and directly.


All the artwork accessories and objects are from Cape-based artisans and add an essential level of layering and local character.


The palette is intentionally and carefully controlled and restrained to embrace the everchanging colours of the sunrise and sunset, which are the real centrepiece and art
