Situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountains in Stellenbosch and nestled between rolling vineyards, a koppie (small granite hill) and a river below, Hillside is simultaneously arresting and juxtaposed as fits flawlessly into its surroundings. You approach the house up a steep driveway meandering through the vineyards. The driveway and the forecourt are a modern interpretation of a traditional farmhouse. This is characterized overall by the planning of the house’s location but also more specifically by the gravel driveway, expansive forecourt, drive-in open garaging reminiscent of a barn and water feature evocative of an animal’s drinking trough. This modern drinking trough is then fed by a modernist architectural waterspout from the roof of the house.

La Carrera is a farmhouse dating from the seventeenth century. It consists of a different buildings collection with the house and the cottage as the most representative.
The task of solving the project required the creation of a new home at the farm house barn for the young generation of the Carrera’s family, but our intervention also sought to dignify around the farm and its access.
