Bespoke apartments on the beach in Clifton in a 10,000m² building over 10 levels.
The client brief was to design the best apartment block in Cape Town to match the prestige of this spectacular site. The Eventide Apartment Project in Clifton stands out as an achievement in civil engineering excellence. This valuable site is located in the heavily built-up area between Clifton ‘Moses’ Beach and Victoria Road, Cape Town. The ten-storey reinforced concrete framed apartment building was built off a base platform which was cut into the mountain slope with 27m high laterally supported rock faces to three sides of the site. The excavation was blasted out of the granite bed-rock with due care taken to protect the surrounding environment. The reinforced concrete framed structure required many innovative solutions to satisfy the unusual architecture of this prestigious development.
