South African architectural practice, Grobler Architects, has renovated the Gardens Cape Town project. Completed in 2013, the renovation and conversion to a Victorian cottage is located in the Gardens area in Cape Town, South Africa.

According to the architects: “Renovations to the cottage included conversion into a home office with guest suite. Period features and finishes were reinstated with new external timber doors, sash windows and shutters as well as new services, joinery and landscaping.

“An existing 1970s extension to the rear of the property was then demolished with a new three-storey 190m2 contemporary addition to the existing cottage. Accommodation included a basement double garage and an open-plan ground floor with kitchen, dining and living areas leading onto a terrace with koi pond and indigenous planting. The master bedroom was located on the first floor with planted terrace, dressing room and master bathroom with private courtyard.
