disa park virtual tour

Sitting on the foothills of Table Mountain, Disa Park’s imposing trio of towers are famous for their unique cylindrical design. For architects Christiaan van Aswegen and Alexander Geh – both keen buffs in the history of architecture and its movements –  the building’s brutalist nature and tube-like shape posed an alluring design challenge, which saw them swapping ‘rooms’ for ‘wedges’ and manipulating angles to enhance perspective.

Surveying the city from their perch on the 14th floor of the first tower, the couple discuss their attraction to Disa, unlocking the apartment’s potential, and their predilection for greenery.

The kitchen and dining room are one area, which makes it easy for entertaining. The table is from LIM and the B34 chairs by Marcel Breuer were bought at Pier Rabe.

The light-filled living area is alive with Alex’s collection of plants. The Togo modular sofa is by Michel Ducaroy for Ligne Roset.

Amid the greenery is a Tulip table by Eero Saarinen for Knoll.
