Gold, marble, brass and oak run through contemporary and cultured Cape Town spa

by Rebecca Barnes | 24 Mar 2017

A new boutique spa and beauty salon has opened in the De Waterkant district of Cape Town, South Africa, "bringing a contemporary edge to the city."

Lume Beauty Atelier was created by local interior designers ARRCC and Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA), with a brief to offer visitors a luxury experience in upscale, high fashion surroundings.

For the reception foyer, monochromatic tones were used to bring calmness to the interior, complemented by luxurious textures and the layering of finishes. French oak, rose gold, brass and white veined marble with accents of black throughout give a luxurious finish.

Incorporating a hair salon, nail bar, three treatment rooms, a medispa and colour lab, the designers were tasked with optimising the 217sq m (2,336sq ft) space; mirrored walls and reflective surfaces were used to achieve this, along with custom made shelving and display cabinets, locally designed and manufactured in Holland.

The nail bar has been designed as a social gathering space, with "clever lighting used to give definition to the area" and Axor Starck glass taps and stone basins adding a sense of luxury.

A focal water feature facilitates the transition from the hair salon and nail bar to the treatment rooms, each of which has an en-suite private cabin, including bathroom and steam shower.

“My vision is to create a new beauty experience in Africa, an ‘atelier’, where a talented team work with the finest products in the world to deliver clients the best beauty and skincare results possible,” said owner Jenny Kouwenhoven.
