15 ON ORANGE HOTEL – CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
The vision for this 29.300m² 5 star luxury hotel for African Pride was to create striking, iconic and contemporary architecture.
This hotel comprises 108 hey, 12 penthouse apartments and a wellness centre. It became a new urban marker which responds sympathetically to the surrounding environment.
Whilst retaining key elements of the existing historic building, it is transformed by the imposition of a vast, light-filled atrium and the addition of uncompromisingly contemporary architectural elements.
It creates a new and transparent hub and breathes fresh life into this key junction of the city. The hotel embodies the spirit of re-invention currently happening in Cape Town.
