Pinelands House

On the drawing board: Additions and alterations to a house in the Pinelands heritage area in Cape Town. New additions are treated as aluminium-clad boxes, which allow large openings while remaining sympathetic to the proportions of the existing building.




A box with a new study and dining room inserted between the old garage and the main dwelling, forming a courtyard behind the new garage in order to retain a mature tree.



The dining room side of the new box, which allows diagonal views between the pool area and a new courtyard to where the old driveway is.



The new garage set close to the street boundary to free up more garden space.



The box to the right enlarges the children's rooms by forming a big modern bay window (a sort-of treehouse, if you like) with seating and bookshelves.



New garage with same finish as the existing house, and the the front box as a discrete, separate element which improves the facade proportion of the existing house.



The existing outdoor living area, with the dining room box in the corner between the old garage (now gym room) and the existing house.



View from the existing kitchen and breakfast area across to the new dining room and study beyond.



The the front box as a discrete, separate element which improves the facade proportion of the existing house.



The existing outdoor living area, with the dining room / study box which defines a courtyard behind the new garage.
