The studio’s dynamic design includes a wraparound balcony, two swimming pools and exposed steel trusses. Plus, masses of natural light from the double sky lights make it perfect for editorial shoots, fashion shows and art exhibitions.

The Wild Fig’s beautiful 18th century farmhouse and glorious outdoor garden setting would not be out of place in the winelands – and neither would its finedining menu. We recommend sharing the charcuterie platter (R95) as a starter, and then moving on to the crispy roast duck (R165) or butter chicken curry (R120) for mains. And as for dessert, the chocolate fondant (R48) will not disappoint.
