Metal Windows Presents Sea Point’s House Tollman
House Tollman is a modern apartment situated in a grand old block on the corner of Milton & Beach Roads, in Sea Point. Interesting, achingly cool and unexpectedly chic. These are just three words that come to mind when considering this comfortable abode.
This three-bedroomed pied-a-terre was therefore designed to maximize entertaining and privacy. It achieves this aim by keeping the bedrooms in the rear of the apartment.
The owners live overseas and appointed good friends, architects Paul Mikula and Simone Lefevre, to transform the apartment. They, therefore, worked together to create the ultimate lock up and go holiday home. The open plan design further allowed for dynamic spatial resolution of the living area.
A love of Africa
The original parquet timber floors were stripped, refinished and laid in a herringbone design. The interior choices and combinations are all reflections of love of African art and people. It is an ode to the value of good local design with a carefully curated collection of art, furniture and ceramics. This includes multiple photographic pieces by Durban artist Jane Bedford.
As part of the revamp all windows were replaced with new Reynaers products by Metal Windows. The brief called for large scale windows to maximize the views. Larry, therefore, designed a short frameless glass balustrade in front of each of the aluminium windows. Reynaers aluminium systems are imported from Europe by Metal Windows. These are then customized to fit the clients’ design aesthetic.
This home is an African inspired Sea Point abode. It is a stylish showcase of contemporary art, retro furniture and cutting edge design.
