One of the stories in our Revamp issue was about the wonderful new lease on life that DECO contributor Doreen de Waal has given to her 19th Century property in central Cape Town. A clever conversion has turned it into a modern little boite (that’s available for hire, incidentally!)

On the same property, Doreen also turned an unused garage/storeroom space into a modern studio apartment that’s the perfect bolt-hole for city visitors.

Read more about these two clever revamps on pages 116-126, and be sure to take a look at Doreen’s Little Black Book of useful renovation contacts too.

See these cottages, and more, in the In Awe website, where details of hiring one for your next Cape Town stay are also available.
