YP Vineyards is an exciting addition and alteration project located in the Devon Valley of Stellenbosch. The project’s focus is on the conversion of the existing traditional farmhouse into a minimalist contemporary home. The building is entirely clad in an aluminium skin, perforated in specific areas to allow for influx of natural light into the interior, where required.
Travertine stone is used as the main finishing material for both walls and floors, internally and externally. A new suspended swimming pool terrace was added to the existing patio space which wraps around the building on the east. The building opens up towards the south to maximise on vistas of the valley. Expansive northern glazed areas were introduced to allow for thermally comfortable interior spaces throughout the year.
