At inception each artist and designer was given a hotel room to play with, coneptualise a unique theme and then design the interior of that particular room accordingly.
From the local-is-lekker afrojazz-centric Freshlyground room to the crimson case of the Emergency Room our hotel rooms are quirky and offbeat and offer a little something different from the staid old hotel room offering.
To continue our love affair with local artists, we also recently asked Conform, a talented and prominent Cape Town mural and graffiti artist, to create a fresh new mural artwork at the hotel; this time in our courtyard.
The brief was simple: brighten the space, with a scene that’s alive with energy while still retaining a characteristics Daddy Long Legs sense of humour. And we absolutely LOVE what he did with the space.
His under- and overwater scene complete with scuba diving chameleon and friendly fishy faces has been a real hit and added a bright and uplifting feel to the previously and admittedly somewhat bland courtyard area. When you’re next ambling along Long Street, pop in and check it out for yourself.
