A suite-only hotel, Johannesburg's Ten Bompas provides relief from the bustle of the business district, welcoming guests with public spaces that feature graceful curves and neutral walls offset by lively prints on custom-built furniture. Proprietor Christoff van Staden enlisted 10 designers to create an urban respite in each of the 10 suites. The hotel’s popular Winehouse restaurant serves simple, delicious French fare with ingredients from the property’s own garden.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
After studying at one of the world’s most prestigious hotel schools, the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, Christoff van Staden broadened his knowledge by going to South Africa to study a postgraduate degree in law. In 1991, Van Staden bought his first property, the Honeyguide Tented Safari Camps, and now along with Peter Aucamp has since continued to make waves in the hospitality industry.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Ten Bompas’ striking architectural design allows natural light to pour into the public spaces through large windows. The exterior of the property is strictly contemporary—with a geometric silhouette and pure white surfaces—while the interior is a glorious clash of traditional African design elements and borrowed Edwardian colonial styles. To-the-minute technology juxtaposes a fireplace, with warmth and tranquility pervading throughout.
