Basileus Capital is the primary operational business within the newly formed Basileus Group, offering the full spectrum of related activities that are required to mature a project or business. They acquired office space in the Icon Building in the foreshore, Cape Town. The offices accommodate a reception with waiting area, a small meeting room, large boardroom with adjacent lounge, numerous offices with generous circulation routes, staff café, shower room, kitchen, secretarial areas and facilities zones.

The interior brief was for a contemporary work environment with an African influence to reflect the group’s roots, energy and stature. This was achieved with various textured floor and wall finishes, indirect cove lighting in circulation and public areas, classic cornice and architrave details, contemporary furniture with a baroque twist, and South African art.
