Maison Noir… Just the name evokes a dreamy feeling – and that’s perfect as it’s a dreamy sort of place! The EA Team recently came across this gem of a venue and instantly knew that we needed to know more! Maison Noir is based in Hout Bay and has been designed through collaboration with architect Paolo Deliperi. Based on the concept of the “African Kraal”, being a series of small buildings, Maison Noir takes this and pops it on its head in the most beautifully modern way you could ever imagine – think interconnected glass passages, outside / inside living, koi ponds, pools, and open air spaces. Both interior and exterior design details draw on the African, French, Indonesian, and global traditions that have defined Cape Town for centuries. The rolling lawns are the perfect setting to hold your intimate wedding, with the Event Affairs // Venues Maison Noir lavish interior giving that “at home wedding” feeling for the perfect luncheon or dinner reception. Boasting an incredible 20-seater wine cellar that is just begging to host a client incentive, private business meetings or intimate dinner. The in-house cinema is also an interesting way to showcase presentations of product launches. Just imagine having a chauffeur drive you up to the Villa and for you to gracefully step out of the car and have a mouth-watering array of canapés and your oh so generous glass of bubbly. Imagine the endless possibilities – cinema for movie presentations, lush lawn for games, open plan kitchen sending out exotic food and exclusive wine pairings - all is possible at this gorgeous Villa and of course, with our planning!
