The Axis is the latest residential development by dhk for Rabie Properties situated in the vibrant mixed use Bridgeways precinct of Cape Town’s Century City.
The building occupies a prominent corner position and capitalises on enviable views of Table Mountain, Robben Island and the Atlantic Ocean that the site affords.
The residential development comprises 83 one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments and penthouses with commercial space and a signature restaurant at ground level, activating the street level.
The compact form of the building wraps around itself and gradually rises up towards the views of Table Mountain and Robben Island orientating the majority of the apartments towards views of the city. The staggered elevation creates dynamic terraces and activity at different heights culminating in the generous penthouse units.
The design complements the greater Bridgeways precinct's urban strategy by creating a series of public, semi-public and private spaces and urban courts.
