The Sentinel is a contemporary residential building situated in Clifford Road, Sea Point, high up the slope of Signal Hill, at a fascinating interface between natural and city landscapes. This outstanding location offers an enviable combination of suburban tranquility and urban convenience. While the peace and quiet of Signal Hill’s majestic natural beauty pervades the site, the lifestyle hotspots and retail convenience of Sea Point and Green Point are close at hand, while Cape Town’s CBD is easily accessed in a matter of minutes via High Level Road.
This stunning contemporary building comprises four two-bedroom apartments and two magnificent three-bedroom penthouses. All the units have terraces and balconies that open up the views towards sea and mountain, and are fitted with high-end finishes and appliances. Bathrooms and kitchens are crafted with modern and natural materials. Sliding shutters protect interiors from the harsh sun and ensure privacy. Provision is made for two parking bays per apartment in the secure basement parking area, while a lift provides secure vertical circulation from basement up to penthouse level.
The Sentinel luxury apartment in Sea Point offers inner city living with all the outdoor attractions that Cape Town has to offer, starting with incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean and walks in the beauty of the Signal Hill mountain reserve. The building offers intelligent and sustainable living with energy-efficient fittings and lighting throughout the building. Spacious living areas opening out onto terraces, decks and private garden areas promote healthy indoor-outdoor flow, with a strong emphasis on contemporary design of the highest standard.
The architectural form of The Sentinel is generated from the topography of the site, responding to its outstanding site and surroundings. Floors are terraced down towards the sea, forming a series of terraces and balconies with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The building’s structure and façade is well articulated to fit the urban scale of the surrounding upper Sea Point area. The design approach is simplicity: the structure and walls define spaces and views captured through full-height glazing, while floating floor slabs and shading devices provide the protection from the elements.
