Calm Balance (March 2011)

The heritage site on which this Cape Winelands guest cottage was built dates all the way back to 1692, giving it a strong historic ambience. We love its wraparound floor-to-ceiling glass surrounding the kitchen and dining area, and the old European botanical prints adorning the walls. [nggallery id=8] Photo credit: Russell Smith

Higher Ground (April 2011)

Every art collector’s dream, this sixth-floor Braamfontein apartment is the perfect work-and-living space for well-known gallerist Michael Obert. We can’t help but envy the spacious wooden deck overlooking the city. [nggallery id=10] Photo credit: Elsa Young
