GSQUARED: A Home In The Heart of the City

Situated in the heart of the city, 152 Waterkant Street has been designed as an urban infill in the historically rich area of de Waterkant. This project by Gsquared Architects comprises a set of apartments, each spread over 4 levels to maximise light and views, whilst respecting the urban fabric.

A subtle and sensitive approach has been taken with the front elevation to respect the local character. Carefully positioned windows and openings capture light and views to the front. This is done while expansive sliding doors open to provide access to a generous outdoor living space that overlooks the city.

As you can see, the interior is equally appealing with gorgeous urban finishes and straight lines that add to a contemporary and updated space.

We love the soft palette of neutrals, from light wooden seamless cabinets in the kitchen to concrete-finished ceilings in the open plan living space. Furthermore, a large kitchen island connects these two areas. This subsequently creates a beautiful flow from one zone to the next.

Contemporary lighting, modern furnishing and feature materials such as wood-panelled walls, add to the modern ambience. Here, it’s all about comfort and style in a beautiful setting.

The room also opens up to a magnificent street view of the city down below. This is by far one of the best features of this residence. Large glass doors can thus be folded back to enjoy the outdoor space. This subsequently creates a light, airy and inviting retreat from city life.

From the living spaces to the bedroom and bathroom, every inch of space has been fully maximised for modern living.


GSQUARED is a compact and creative Cape Town-based architectural practice. The team takes pride in delivering projects that are imaginatively conceived, well-designed and respond entirely to client objectives and aspirations. Founded in 2006, the firm’s journey has thus taken them from high-end luxury residential architecture; medium-sized commercial developments; interior refurbishments, and bespoke furniture design.

As a service-driven firm, GSQUARED specialises in architecture in all forms. Furthermore, the focus is entirely on the site and brief versus imported or borrowed styles.
