Holiday Home Renovation—Exterior Garden Terrace

Set against the green forested mountains of Hout Bay, a holiday home—to a Dutch family—required extensive interior and exterior renovation. The aim was to refresh by replacing with local materials and hand-made products to enhance the experience of being in Cape Town and surrounded by nature. The outdoor overgrown garden was landscaped with lush indigenous vegetation amidst stone steps and the terrace was opened up to access the garden and the pool area.
