Cape Town's newest eco-residence
We adopted the historical typology of the Cape Dutch farms and transported it into the 21st century.
Constructed with local materials but equipped with cutting edge green technology the aim is to reinvent an iconic symbol of the region.
The north facing courtyards grant unobstructed views towards Table Mountain, while protecting from the harsh African sun.
The Eco-Residence is designed to the standard of utmost sustainability, to be self-sufficient and independent from the grid.
In a similar fashion, the interior spaces use green technology to utilize passive ventilation, heating and cooling.
