Blok adds a layer of exclusivity to Selbourne Road

SEVENONS is the newest addition to Blok’s fast-growing Atlantic Seaboard residential portfolio. With only eight apartments in the building, this project offers a sense of exclusivity within the context of a bustling city neighbourhood – something that is true to all of the Blok developments.

The design brief for SEVENONS required a building that de-constructed itself to feel welcoming and intimate to its future residents whilst simultaneously pushing forward the architectural language of its shape and street edge. It effortlessly combined into this the critical relationship between inside and outside space, a requirement for urban living and to take advantage of the north light and views.

Six of the apartments will have two bedrooms while the two penthouses offer a spacious duplex layout with three bedrooms each. All eight will have secure parking, a storeroom and CCTV and manned security.

The architectural design team, WAUW, used the concept of “layers” as their inspiration when hitting the drawing board, and this has been beautifully translated in the final design; with each storey of the building communicating a different element, all informed by the surrounding site on which it will stand.

WAUW: “We believe we have created a truly unique statement that unshackles itself from the expected, while simultaneously fitting in with its surrounds. We further hope that SEVENONS will add a new exciting layer of architectural expression to the area that consistently and gently nudges forward the envelope of Cape Town’s existing residential language.”

Blok homes are all thoughtfully designed with constant attention to detail from the start of the design process; from the SMEG appliances to the Beauty Fires ethanol fireplaces, to Oggie oak flooring throughout, no need is left unmet. Apartments come standard with smart home, water and lighting technology that allows the owner to control certain elements of their home from anywhere in the world, and the renowned Blok Third Spaces mean that even in the busiest city location, one can find space at home for that personal area, be it a man cave, home office or quiet meditation area.

Set only 800 steps from the Lion’s Head Path, 850 steps to the Sea Point Primary School and a short drive from Cape Town CBD – SEVENONS offers its occupants the opportunity to have the perfect work/life balance, both inside and outside the front door.

SEVENONS construction begins early 2016, with occupation set for 1 May 2017.
