Cape Dutch Homestead

This Cape Dutch style residence afforded us the opportunity to revisit the detailing and construction of traditional Cape Dutch landscape elements. Our brief was to balance the contemporary requirements of the owner with the traditional structuring of the site. We inherited a site that had been awkwardly subdivided with some tricky existing elements that were to be retained. Visual axes and framed views provide structure within the garden which is balanced by informal indigenous planting and water features create a lush and relaxed setting.
