House Blignaut | Newlands

We have been appointed by a lovely couple to renovate their existing dwelling to suit their needs. The dwelling is situated in Newlands, Cape Town and has stunning views of Table Mountain.

The brief included the renovation of the existing dwelling to incorporate a larger and more functional kitchen and scullery. Included is also the extension of the main bedroom and new en-suite as well as providing a new en-suite to an existing bedroom in addition a new dressing room to the other bedroom. The design aims to be gentle to the existing structure but then again incorporating new materials to uplift its appearance. Lime washed face brick cladding is used to define the new additions also providing for a more prominent entrance. Large fold-a-side windows matching the design of the existing timber windows embrace the view of Table Mountain allowing light and ventilation into the new spaces. A new deck is also proposed to take advantage of the beautiful outside areas and allowing for more summer entertainment space.
