Olive Farm

Olive Farm

Island design was never part of our Architectural training, but when our client asked us to build an island for his new development, we were completely on board. Simondium is a rural farmland, just outside Paarl CBD, in the Winelands of the Western Cape. The project was conceptualised as a series of buildings, forming a village, and the village as a house. Its hirarchy of large spaces vs small enclosed spaces and multiple courtyards, surrounded by waterbodies, makes this a unique place to be.
