The Elm takes heed of nat­u­ral light­ing

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

HORI­ZON Cap­i­tal Res­i­den­tial is plan­ning to break ground in Au­gust on its lat­est de­vel­op­ment, The Elm in Vre­de­hoek, one of Cape Town’s old­est City Bowl sub­urbs.

“The Elm will con­sist of 10 apart­ments in a four- storey block, in­clud­ing one-, two- and three-bed­room units and two pent­houses,” says Hori­zon man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, David Sedg­wick.

“In de­sign­ing The Elm we con­sid­ered the el­e­vated and prom­i­nent north po­si­tion of the site with its city and sea views, and also its moun­tain views to the south. Our team was de­ter­mined to cre­ate a build­ing that was ar­chi­tec­turally en­gag­ing and which would en­able res­i­dents to break away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city.”

The Elm will be close to Deer Park, Ta­ble Moun­tain trail run­ning routes, lo­cal cof­fee shops and restau­rants, and De Waal Park.

Sedg­wick says fin­ishes and fit­tings at The Elm will in­clude wooden floor­ing, un­der-floor heat­ing in bath­rooms, heated towel rails, and floor-to-ceil­ing glass and alu­minium slid­ing doors lead­ing to gen­er­ous ter­races.

Hori­zon chief ex­ec­u­tive John Wit­ter says the build­ing façade was cre­ated to draw in as much north light as pos­si­ble – from the morn­ing sun to softer af­ter­noon sun­sets, and the glow of the night city lights.

“We also wanted to cre­ate gen­er­ous ter­races to al­low res­i­dents pri­vate and se­cluded out­door re­treats to take in the views,” says Wit­ter.

Prices start at R2.85 mil­lion and each apart­ment is as­signed se­cure park­ing.

Com­ple­tion is sched­uled for De­cem­ber 2017.
