Elgin Valley, Western Cape, South Africa




How ecstatic we were to be working once more at the idyllic Old Mac Daddy location in Elgin. This time the goal was to design a private residence for one of the owners of the hotel. The result was one of the most dynamic spaces we’ve ever created. Appointed on a bank with a view over the playful dam, boarded by orchards and with panoramic views of the valley, lead to a building with spacious areas integrating harmoniously with the bountiful surroundings. The use of dark timber externally, and light wood internally, contributed to a subtle and warm feel respectively.
