SPACES

THREE M I NSER I E STREET , STELLENBOSCH Publisher Hannes van Zyl’s love for books and old movies allowed architect Quinton Lawson to transform his rather dull 1929 Stellenbosch gabled house into a sumptous library, with bookshelves for walls, a home cinema, a titanium-tiled tower with the Moederkerk in its sights, a single bedroom, a tiny kitchen and a carport used as a picture gallery. The house, which through its open design is divided into spaces rather than rooms, has a sense of optimism and of daring about it. The titanium tower is constructed on the same axis as the old church, acknowledging it in a subtle way, and also confronting it. Visi magazine
