An untouched piece of land on the edge of a fruit and wine farm overlooking a trout-heavy stream called for clever thinking and sensitive design choices to limit the visual impact on the environment. Floor-to-ceiling views and a prefabricated build that ticked comfort and affordability were the simple briefs given to architect Nikita van Zyl of ModH Design, who collaborated with interior designer Kim Spyron of Oooh Interior Design. Kim regularly camps at Trouthaven Farm with her family. ‘A simple pod structure maximises views and prioritises privacy, giving a sense that this little pocket of nature is yours. Every angle, movement or position presents you with a magnificent view and radiates tranquillity, ease and a sense of connection,’ she says. These lightweight steel, laser-cut structures can be made to measure, flat-packed, delivered to…

history in the making

STEPHEN & LINDA NESSWORTHY, AYMARA YARNS Simple, classic and luxurious woven and knitted goods from alpaca fibre are homegrown, spun and made at Klein Limietrivier Farm, a rare and unusual building in Wellington erected around 1715 from unbaked clay bricks and later lovingly restored by its owners Stephen and Linda Nessworthy. It is the only mill in South Africa able to process alpaca from raw fleece. Its sensitive use of colour, as well as simple design, make its products easily recognisable. Aymara is a language of the Andes, and pays homage to the origins of the alpaca. Much of the brand’s inspiration comes from the surrounding Hawaqua Range, which extends from Bainskloof to Tulbagh Pass. Currently, we have 260 alpaca with around 50 more births anticipated this year. They grow a myriad of…

There is certainly no shortage of that in upmarket ski resorts the world over. But that is not what the British architectural firm Gort Scott suggested when it submitted its entry for a competition to design a holiday house in Whistler, British Columbia, for a Hong Kong-based family. ‘It was a special client,’ cofounder Jay Gort concedes. ‘He had spent holidays in the area with his family and eventually bought a plot of land – he has a passion for…
