Aupiais House Design by Greg Wright Architects


Greg Wright Architects have completed the Aupiais House in Camps Bay, South Africa.

Description from Greg Wright Architects

Site Interior Design was approached having a couple of to skin the shell within their newly purchased, though technically incomplete, Camps Bay residence. The house hold was a contemporary shell but needed a “layer” to allow it to become a property.

From the outset, the clients were open-minded and came with an exciting frame of reference and good aesthetic sensibilities. Contrary on the default bleached ‘Beach House’ aesthetic so prevalent while in the area, a loaded palette was realized with pure supplies bringing warmth and highlights on the often dramatic rooms that resulted.


Furnishing the spaces was executed using a balanced combined well-known local and overseas furnishing brands in collaboration with a substantial quantity of custom-intended and manufactured feature pieces.

The intention can be a diverse series of striking environs, every special but creating a recognizable design DNA connecting them to become a family of patently related spaces.


Bedrooms can be found finished in different neutral tones, always having natural timber being a consistent accent. Furniture was picked or designed specially to reside alongside bespoke headboards and bed bases and natural, woven designer rugs and throws, quirky item and iconic lamps occur along to incorporate a feeling of individuality to each one from the rooms.


The cavernous basement living space is transformed in to the ideal entertainer’s retreat affectionately termed the ‘Legend Room’ through the masters. Reflective surfaces contrast towards matt walls as well as the strange ‘wetsuit’ fabric in the custom-designed sofa in particular shaped to fit the different wall configuration in the existing structure.


The strong joinery concept that defines the principle dwelling regions and study are evidence from the continuity of resources throughout your home. They set the base palette but are designed for being interactive and intended to be “curated” by your owners, encouraging them to accumulate art pieces and exhibit them in various often-changing configurations. The incorporation of sustainably sourced timber, paired with luxurious linens and worn leather-based upholstery, tempers the otherwise warm, dark interiors.

Each part of your house is considered just as one chance to set-up upon the theme of neutrals and naturals set shut off against contrasting resources and hues. All work with each other to produce a striking visual impact; the closing result is really a bold, livable inside with clear identity.
