MODERN CAPE DUTCH


The Modern Cape Dutch style is based on the traditional Cape Dutch style with some notable variations: The elaborate gables have been simplified, the thatch roofs have been replaced with corrugated iron or slate, and sweeping modern architectural beams and large windows have been added.

MANOR HOUSE REINVENTED


Take a typical Cape Dutch manor house, straighten the gables, simiplify the windows and something special is created.


MORE OLD WORLD


If the above is too modern, something more traditional can be achieved by rounding the windows and adding pergolas to soften the facade.

FARMHOUSE APPEAL


By adding some genuine timber shutters and fascias a more farmhouse effect is created.
