HOUSE DESIGN SERVICES - AFRICA
We provide concept designs for Africa and the international market. The concept design includes house plans of all the floors, together with four elevations. The plans are adequately dimensioned for a local architect to provide the service of adding notes and a site plan required for the relevant local municipality of the country. We provide full architect Services South Africa, including design and approval of building plans. Site work is however only available in Cape Town and surrounding areas such as Stellenbosch, Paarl and Somerset West.
HOUSE PLANS, CAPE TOWN
Anyone wanting to build in Cape Town, will require a building plan that is approved by the local municipality and conforms to the requirements of the the National Building Regulations of South Africa. Only a reqistered professional can submit building plans and Beverley Hui is registered with all the relevant bodies in South Africa. We are familiar with new requirements for energy efficiency in buildings and can ensure that your house plan conforms. Plans can be submitted anywhere in South Africa, but outside of Cape Town, the client will receive pdf versions from the architect, for printing and submission by the client. For other African countries and interntaional clients, we provide concept design services only, and a local architect must complete the plans for submission in the relevant country.
Beverley Hui has professional artistic training and is able to draw sketches quickly to help you understand the design in three dimensions. For a photo quality computer rendering, we have consultants on stand-by who can provide a super-realistic rendering of the design as an extra service.
INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICE
Beverley Hui architect considers the interior design to be an extension of the architectural design. All our house plans are designed to have wonderful interior spaces that flow and include open plan layouts for living areas. We design our staircases, double volume areas and full height windows from an interior perspective to create a harmonious whole. We provide general spread-sheets of areas and suggested finishes that will compliment our vision for the interior. For a more detailed interior service, including specific colour and material choices, we provide an interior service on an hourly basis. Beverley Hui architect doesn not provide detailed kitchen and cabinetry drawings which are now normally provided by the relevant suppliers using state-of-the-art software. We also do not provide design of soft finishes such as loose furniture, apholstery and curtains, but can recommend specialist interior designers who do.
