As a "Residential Architect Cape Town", Beverley Hui has had the privilege of designing numerous beautiful luxury residences in the Cape Town area over the last 10 years. A number of the homes have won awards or been including in top home magazines in South Africa. Her most recently completed project is the main house on Reditus farm, which is located on a working olive farm just outside of Stellenbosch. The architect took advantage of the stunning views of Table mountain, and Simonsberg, and was articulated in the contemporary style.
The Breytenbach residence is a large, luxurious home located in De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate in Stellenbosch, Cape Town. This modern interpretation of the Cape Dutch style is very adventurous in its layout, with gables being located at various angles, and a colonnade flanking a long sparkling pool. The design is not immediately understood, which is what makes it so appealing.
The Maltman residence is located in Stellenbosch, Cape Town. The large house is designed in an L-shaped plan, with a 12m extra-long swimming pool lining up with the central gable. The gable, patio, and entertaiment areas interlink beautifully and reflect in the sparkling pool, creating the stunning modern appeal of this residence. The interior incorporated expansive double volume areas with a double-curved staircase creating the "Wow" effect.
REDITUS FARM HOUSE
The Reditus farm house is located in Stellenbosch, and was designed using "green architecture" principals. This contemporary style home makes use of laminated glass to reduce the amount of solar energy absorbed by the building. The house was well-insulated including special materials that were used to insulate the exposed roof trusses over the living area. Rainwater harvesting and grey-water recyling was implemented making the home less dependent on municipal water.

AZURASOLVE BOUTIQUE HOTEL
This building has become something of an Iconic home in Paarl, Cape Town, is set as it is against the Paarl mountain range, and reflecting in the lakes of a wine Estate. The symmetry of the design, though not strictly adhered to, is accentuated by large flat-arched doors on the lower levels that are punctuated by six panel windows above. Articulated in the French style, this boutique hotel is careful detailed with French ironwork balustrades and gates. Originally it was commissioned by Azurosolve properties to be a small hotel for polo players but later it was bought out to become a restful family residence.

DARLING TOWERS FARMSTEAD
A romantic building set on the slopes of the Darling farming areas and overlooking the town. It was designed to appear as a genuine historical Cape Dutch Manor, though some artistic license was taken in painting the walls light grey instead of white. This was to contrast with the white door and window frames which are made of uPVC instead of the traditional dark wood. The roof is also of a more modern corrugated sheeting instead of thatch. The changes are tastefully done so that the building is easily mistaken for one from a bygone era.

Also in the Cape Dutch style the Fernwood house has dark wooden door and window frames that match a pergola on the outside. The dormer windows soften the facade and bring light to the loft.
This residence was completed in a French style, with large rounded shutters that contrast with the almost frameless glass doors. A subtle grey and white colour palette are well suited to the graceful design.
