Things to see, trends to spot and places to be

11 GLASS HALF FULL Whisky brand Scottish Leader has launched limited-edition festive season gift packs featuring Innocent Mukheli and Vuyo Mpantsha of the creative collective I See A Different You. The duo was asked to collaborate with the brand for its Afro-optimist outlook and to signify Scottish Leader’s forward thinking outlook. The gift packs are available in three Scottish Leader blended whisky variants, Original, Signature and 12 Year Old, and each comes with two whisky glasses. iseeadifferentyou.co.za, scottishleader.co.za

12 FARM FRESH The five Vineyard Suites at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek have always enjoyed prime position and optimum privacy, but the recent refurbishment by Clinton Savage has taken them from charming to world-class. Referencing their setting but in a contemporary way, the suites feature panelled ceilings, traditional Dutch Klompie-brick tiling and lowkey palettes. Each one has a private terrace and plunge pool. lapetititeferme.co.za

13 MILES OF STYLE The Regency Group recently opened the The Regency Apartment Hotel in Menlyn, Pretoria, in partnership with MD Siyanda Dlamini’s new hotel management company. The hotel is designed to serve leisure and business travellers in the busy Menlyn node. One- and two-bedroom apartment-style suites offer options for long and short-term travellers. 30keyes.co.za

14 ON THE CORNER The AfriSam-SAIA Award for Sustainable Architecture + Innovation recognises sustainable innovation in design. One of the winners, the mixed-use Fulham Heights in Brixton, is designed to promote passive surveillance in what is known to be a high-crime zone. The sensitive regeneration by Local Studio respects the building’s heritage as a corner shop. localstudio.co.za, sustainabledesign.co.za

15 RESORT IN THE CITY The Capital’s new business resort, Capital On The Park in Sandton, is a 300-room hotel offering everything from luxury accommodation to conference facilities and fitness classes. By stripping the frills guests don’t want and focusing on the things they do, the hotel has filled a much-needed niche for luxury executive accommodation in a central business location. The hybrid model also appeals to investors who opted to buy into the venture. thecapital.co.za
