A first look: The stunning new show penthouse at Parc du Cap in Cap d’Antibes

New show penthouse at Parc du Cap has a terrace so spacious, designers have zoned it.

Luxury property developer Caudwell Collection has teamed up with the top London interior design studio, th2designs, to style and fully furnish one of its extraordinary Parc du Cap penthouses. The four-bedroom show penthouse at the South of France development has a 332sqm rooftop terrace which has been crafted into unique zones to maximise outdoor living in the idyllic Riviera climate.

Vast roof terraces areas

The 10 penthouses at Caudwell’s Parc du Cap each come with a private rooftop pool, spectacular terraces and panoramic sea views of either the ocean, the mountains or both. This lateral four-bed penthouse selected as the new show apartment presented a challenge to th2designs; namely, how to style the extensive roof terraces. At double that of the interior space, the penthouse’s split-level terraces are one of Parc du Cap’s most exquisite offerings.

To maximise the unique outdoor space, th2designs divided the generous area into zones for different uses at various times of the day, depending on the position of the sun. These include a bar and sunset terrace for evening cocktails; a relaxed seating area to enjoy a morning coffee and read the papers; a private siesta space off the master bedroom; and comfortable areas around the rooftop pool to relax and sunbathe. th2designs worked with a local landscaper to source plants for screening and zoning the various outdoor spaces, ensuring these complemented the local vegetation and beautiful main gardens of Parc du Cap.

Interiors fit for a penthouse

In styling the Parc du Cap penthouse interiors, th2designs carefully considered the locality when designing the schemes and finishes. Luxurious yet practical fabrics and materials were chosen to ensure they worked with the warm Mediterranean climate. As a result, each room is fully furnished with its own personality, focal point and flow of space, complementing the incredible views.

th2designs selected a colour palette that was inspired by both the local natural landscape and the landscaped gardens at the heart of the development. The interior design team devised distinct schemes made up of natural, tonal palettes: olive for the living spaces, lavender for the master suite, almond, rose and pamplemousse for the three further bedrooms, and cerise for the roof terraces.

Gail Taylor, managing director of th2designs, said: “Parc du Cap is undoubtedly one of the top luxury residential developments in the Côte d’Azur. With such a generous amount of outdoor space, we wanted to make these gorgeous roof terraces functional yet memorable at the same time. Zoning was the ideal solution and we’re thrilled with the results.

“Inside, we wanted to craft a furnishing scheme that complemented and enhanced the already stunning penthouse apartment. This meant creating all the luxury expected in the very best hotel whilst feeling welcoming and comfortable. The interior had to be contemporary and high-end but also calming and relaxed. A true home away from home where anyone walking in would want to kick off their shoes and settle in!”

Reynald Lapitz, CEO of Provençal Investments (the French subsidiary of Caudwell), added: “Gail and the team have really grasped the essence of what makes our penthouses so special. Inside, the luxurious yet relaxed interior design delights all the senses. Outside, the zoning of the terraces into multi-functional spaces cleverly maximises the space. We’re delighted with the end results.”
