Urban Farm House

Riebeek Kasteel

The Brief

The brief was to design a new holiday house on a historical vine land in the town of Riebeek Kasteel situated on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa

 

The Concept

The site for the new house is a historical vine land situated within farmlands and the small town of Riebeek Kasteel just 90km away from Cape Town. It was important to design the house not only to fit within the topography of the site, but also within the historical architectural fabric of the surrounding. Vineyards, farmland and mountain views together with north facing living rooms and bedrooms were key influences in the layout of the house.
