Acerca de


This work explores 23 houses in South Africa, varying in character from the simple dignity of Barville Park in the Eastern Cape to the grand-scale opulence of the Tuynhuis in Cape Town. Their histories, both architectural and domestic, are presented, including information on the circumstances of the buildings, the families who occupied them, and their fate at the hands of subsequent generations.

From Library Journal:

This work's stylish photographs of dazzling whitewashed exteriors, expansive colonnaded verandas, drawing rooms richly appointed with statuary and exotic fauna and flora, and teak-paneled billiard rooms evoke a colonial lifestyle sustained in South Africa through most of the 20th century. Twenty-three eclectic estates (primarily in Cape Dutch, Georgian, Regency, and Victorian design) are featured in this lavish tome, a collaboration between a Cape Town restorationist and a local photographer. The story of each house's ownership and occupancy, construction, restorations, furnishings, and period details is complemented by historic photographs and research gleaned from family archives. A glossary of terms and a bibliography complete this showcase tour of vernacular colonial architecture that was first published in South Africa in 1987. Of interest to informed lay readers and specialists alike, this is recommended for larger academic libraries and architecture and interior design collections.?Russell T.
