Contemporary Residential Architecture in Stellenbosch designed by Beverley Hui
What does modern living mean for architectural design in South Africa today? Discerning clients are looking for open plan living with good flow and easy access to the outdoors. For the interior they want clean lines with interesting and colourful focal points - avoiding the trap of the overly minimalistic design. While trends change over the years, our methodology is based on architectural principles that are timeless and consistently produce high quality designs.
CONTEMPORARY HOMES & FARMSTEADS
FARMHOUSE IN THE VINEYARDS
CONTEMPORARY FARMHOUSE IN THE CAPE WINELANDS. The client required a modern style home that would compliment the beautiful natural setting on a cape wine farm. The challenge was to create a design that minimised energy use, while including large expanses of glass that faced the stunning views of the Table mountain and Simonsberg mountains to the West and East. Inspired by Peter Pichler Architects & Associates
FARMHOUSE - EAST ELEVATION
The EAST ELEVATION of the farmhouse showcases the modern stylistic elements including large strecthes of performance glass with deep beams overhead.

This CONTEMPORARY home was designed for a farm on the Stellenbosch winelands and included a separate studio for a work-from-home office.
COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL DESIGNS

REDFERN INDUSTRIAL OFFICE PARK

The adjoining offices were located on mezzanine floors, and with the juxtaposition of redbrick and high volume glazing areas, made them a positive working environment.
