An unused living room in a Fresnaye home in Cape Town has been converted into a hip hangout.
Excess space can turn even the most organised people into hoarders. The owners of a house in the Cape Town suburb of Fresnaye weren’t about to let that happen when questioning what to do with their unused lounge. Instead of turning it into an area packed with things they didn’t need, they decided to transform it into an urban entertainment pad for their 17-year-old son Robbie. The most impressive feature is the concrete skate bowl, painstakingly designed to fit perfectly in the space and accompanied by the artwork of local street artist Jack Fox. Keeping with the curvature theme, guests can enjoy a movie underneath a sleek timber wave equipped with surround sound. The space is also set up with a pool table, vintage Spiderman pinball machine, punching bag, and pull-up bar. In between activity, Robbie and his friends can chill out at the bar and admire his most prized possession: his surfboard. The urban man cave is sure to be the best hangout spot in the neighborhood.
