Modern upgrade

Posted on June 3rd, 2017

The town of Hermanus in Cape Town is well-known for its white, sandy beaches, comfortable ocean temperatures and of course sensational mountain sights, but its also the ideal holiday destination or retirement town for hardworking city slickers who love the idea of escaping to the beach on weekends.

The lovely home featured in homify 360, recently underwent an upgrade by GLA, making it a modern, elegant and aesthetically appealing living space for a growing family. We ensured that the house is comfortable, filled with natural light making it the perfect space to retire.

Let’s begin our tour to inspire you!

Homify 360° discovery zooms in on the 3D designs for a modern home designed by GLA located in one of the most beautiful, dream-worthy spots in South Africa: Stellenbosch. And seeing as the location is nothing to scoff at, that means the structure also had to pull its weight in terms of style and beauty.

Fortunately, this dream home, conjured up by Cape Town-based professionals Gallagher Lourens Architects, is a vision that is sure to move the top of many people’s “My dream homes” lists.

HOUSE CONVERSION: modern Houses by Gallagher Lourens Architects

Homify features a gorgeous home renovation with renderings and plans, designed by Gallagher Lourens Architects.

This home is a conversion of a typical 1970s suburban home, which had been originally built on a sloping site. The new and modern design features two courtyards, allowing for a wonderful flow between indoor and outdoor living. The architects have also tried to exploit the gorgeous views, while ensuring that the home is protected from strong winds.
While the construction is still yet to occur, these images and plans give us a wonderful idea of what the final product will look like.


One of our renovations in Cape Town

Posted on April 25th, 2017

Featured in Homify’s Ideabook. Located against the mountain slopes of Llandudno in Cape Town overlooking the Atlantic, this outdated home was in severe need of not only a style up, but also extensive additions. The footprint of the existing house was used as a platform from where the new structure unfolded. Natural boulders protect the house on its south-eastern edge, which allows openness in this direction. Elsewhere, the structure is more enclosed, although punctured and cut open to allow views to the mountain.
