Cape Dutch Guest House - Johannesburg by Claire Cardwell (Blue Designs)
Cape Dutch Guest House - Johannesburg
The brief was to design a modern Cape Dutch style Guest House in a leafy suburb of Johannesburg. The existing house was completely demolished to make way for a spacious luxury get away for the discerning traveler.
The Entrance is framed by koi ponds, a fountain and formal garden.
It took just a year to build the Guest House and a further three months for the finishes; 3.6 metre ceilings add to the feeling of space, the extra height windows and doors were specially designed.
There are 7 luxury Suites, a 2 bedroom Pool House, a spacious Covered Patio and a Conference Centre. The large Dining Room leads on to the Covered Patio - perfect for summer dining or after dinner drinks. There is a TV Lounge and intimate Library with a fireplace - great for curling up with a book on winters evenings.
I am first and foremost an artist, I paint, mosaic & am now playing with resins & clays. I love colour & mixing textures & media. I love Architecture. I think it's vital to talk about all aspects of Architecture - whether it be planning, construction, design or green building. I have written 3 E-Books & over 110 articles. Please feel free to let me know if you have any queries regarding architecture, planning & construction & I will assist you.
I am originally from the UK and moved to South Africa in 1999. I started Blue Designs in 2004 after working as a driver for Avalon Construction on a luxury home in the Featherbrook Estate. In my spare time I am an artist and writer.
