An overview of House De Boer in Constantia, South Africa


De Boer

  • Location: Constantia
  • Decorator: Client
  • Landscape Designer: Alan Dawson

The De Boers bought their house once construction had commenced.  The original Dutch client’s brief was for a traditional building with extensive entertainment areas and numerous bedrooms.  When the De Boers purchased, they requested a very contemporary interior within the confines of the traditional structure.

The design was restricted by a steeply sloping site, an onerous height restriction, and the views of False Bay to the South.  The elongated design enabled one to capture the North light too.
