Eva-Last selected to complete luxury façade and pool pergola of The Capital Hotel

The Capital Hotels and Apartments group has described its new Mbombela feature hotel as a significant social hub for business meetings, domestic leisure tourism, the local community and international visitors. Designed with high-end socialising in mind, the hotel features an ultra-modern design aesthetic which stands out, yet compliments, in its bushveld locale.

A celebration of open design and flow, the luxury hotel’s main road-facing façade was intended by the architects to showcase a softer aesthetic, when compared with more typically sharp, ‘brutal’ exterior material treatments. Eva-Last supplied 200m2 of VistaClad wall cladding, as well as 36m2 of gate cladding to give the building a natural timber appearance throughout the building, linking exquisitely to the interior wooden finishes and creating a natural flow throughout.

The repeated feature cladding on the parkade entrance has created an impeccable synergy in appearance. While the versatility of the Eva-Last fascia cladding enabled the use of a variety of angles within the gate construction to create a unique yet seamless ‘wood look’.

The pool pergola provides continued aesthetic flow into the main hotel recreation area. The Pergola not only provides a beautiful aesthetic but its fade, weather and decay-resistant nature will be sure to offer hotel visitors respite from the baking lowveld sun for years to come.
