Sir Richard Branson's Manor House
Kritzinger Architects have completed Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive Manor House located at his Mont Rochelle Hotel and Vineyard Estate in the Cape Winelands. The property forms part of the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio, Branson’s private collection of luxury hotels and retreats. The historic Manor House was substantially upgraded to include four luxury suites, a lounge and open-plan kitchen, dining and living area and two outdoor pools. The roof was re-built to accommodate a loft bedroom, en-suite bathroom and terrace overlooking the village. New architectural interventions were sensitively combined with existing elements of historic value and finished with a palette natural materials and soft neutral tones. Photos by Nicolas Matheus.
