Icaria house is a private and secluded home located on the exclusive and sheltered Atlantic seaboard, bordering Clifton/Bantry Bay – set amidst a natural arrangement of granite boulders it gives guests a natural and relaxed atmosphere of a home away from home.
South African practice Antonio Zaninovic Architecture Studio has overhauled a 1960s house in Cape Town with designer Tara Bean, adding outdoor areas to make the most of its ocean views. The Cape Town studio, founded by Chilean architect Antonio Zaninovic, and local designer Bean spent two years renovating the run-down, mid-century property.
The four-storey Icaria House serves as a holiday home and rental unit for Kearnon O’Molony, a South African who grew up in the city and now lives in New York. It is located in Cape Town’s Bantry Bay neighbourhood and built into a granite bluff that culminates with the Atlantic Ocean 15 meters below. Photography is by Elsa Young.
