African Inspired Zinzi Restaurant
Zinzi Restaurant is an African Inspired eatery on Hunter’s Estate, Plettenberg Bay. Designed by Paul Oosthuizen with interiors and styling by Imagenious Interiors, it is an immaculate open space overlooking the dam.
Zinzi draws its inspiration from Nomadic African style, with textured concrete walls, screeded floors, beautiful antique Zanzibari doors and windows. The interiors are simple – Indian style tables and chairs upholstered in nomadic Suzani style handprinted textiles in natural tones.
For over 30 years I have been integrating my deep love of Africa with my passion for exceptional guest and lifestyle experience. I have a keen sense of adventure and the ability to introduce a sense of playfulness into the creation of beautiful and welcoming spaces.
I take each project from conceptualisation through design to installation, following through with comprehensive operational consulting as each project requires.
My design inspiration springs from the unique DNA of each location and the sense of place it inspires. It is a mindful connection with that space and careful consideration of it’s function and an understanding of it’s occupants that is fundamental. Relevance, original thinking, collaboration with other artists and respect for materials are all part of the process to create an environment that embraces the space it inhabits.
In my work I strive to maintain a light footprint and to respect the environment and all those with whom I connect. I am always conscious of the total experience and want each guest to feel the complete joy my work brings me.FIND OUT MORE →
