Fresnaye Apartment


Kritzinger Architects have been appointed to transform an existing single dwelling in Fresnaye into a new apartment building comprising of three separate apartments. The existing structure will be gutted on the inside and added to on the outside in order to achieve a simple form to which colour will be added to create a bold new identity. The simple building form and colour pallet draws inspiration from Cape Towns Cape Malay buildings in the historic Bo Kaap area in a similar way Luis Barragain drew inspiration from traditional Mexican architecture. Building plans have been submitted to the City of Cape Town and construction is expected to start early 2020.
