The building complex took its architectural and stylistic cue from the existing flat-roofed (brakdak) labourer’s cottage at No. 15 (first title deed dating to 1908). This small building is oriented topographically (like the contour of the water furrow running at an angle across the property and along the street frontage) for maximum sun exposure during the cool winter months. Originally consisting of 2 cells (kitchen and living room), it was later extended to include a bedroom, then bathroom and outdoor terrace on the west façade. This building received a Merit Award from the W Cape Heritage Committee for sensitive restoration in 2000, and is now an income generating 4 star guest cottage.
The street façade shows the typical, flat band mouldings around doors, windows and along the parapet. Wooden shutters feature an unusual circular hole pattern created by the former owner. Both these features, the “crooked” geographic orientation plus the dimensions of the original cottage were incorporated by award-winning, Pretoria-based architect Derick de Bruyn in the plan for the new house adjacent.
Thus the modern complex (completed 2001) faithfully honours the old Karoo style flat-roofed labourers’ cottages.Yet, on entering from the street, one suddenly stands in a soaring volume reaching 7 metres with large windows framing the “koppie“, and encompassing the open plan kitchen and living area. Finishes are simple but solid: cement floors with under floor heating (lounge/bathroom), cement work surfaces, wooden shuttered windows and doors, no skirting or other profiles. An open fireplace spanning the entire 7m double volume height completes the laid back, elegant interior. The main house has solar water heating.
