MODERN STYLE EXAMPLES


This home features strong horizontal elements juxtaposed almost as if it were a cubist artwork on canvas. A strong contrast is made between heavy massing elements and thin cavities. The reinforced concrete roof can be seen in profile from this side, and is an architectural masterpiece.

LIGHT COLOUR STYLE


Aside from the usual white beams with dark windows, another modern colour style that is very effective is beige walls and beams with white windows and shutters. This is a very fresh contemporary look that is great for beach houses and in this case contrasts beautifully with the purple mountains of Cape Town.

STRAND APARTMENT BLOCK


This block is an older example of contemporary architecture but is timeless somehow in its boldness and freshness with daring hexagonal balconies that cantilever to the outside of the holiday block. Many of these have subsequently been enclosed with reflective glass which somehow adds more interest to the design.
