'A barn with wings! 'That's how best one could describe the architectural triumph that is the home on Maison wine farm in Franschhoek. Van der Merwe Miszewski Architects masterfully converted the old farm barn into an astonishing home by carefully modernising it into the main living area and then adding on two new 'wings' - one for the children and one the master bedroom suite. Consideration of central axis lines and paying tribute to farm-style 'werf' layout, the contemporary home has become a minimalist sanctuary that opens up and 'breaths in' the Franschhoek lifestyle.
Owners Kim Smith and Chris Weylandt know furniture and good design - they should as they run leading furniture store Weylandts. On buying trips around the world they have carefully selected the very best pieces for their home. Together this team have created a home of the finest order. A masterpiece of design in the breathtaking setting of Franschhoek.
