The local monastery in Muri is the community’s definitive characteristic, from where the roads, paths and building structures radiate into the landscape. Like the existing 19th-century houses and the auxiliary buildings around the monastery, the houses along Williweg are conceived as “houses with gardens”. Their mutual proximity creates the impression of an overall body along the street that recalls the volumetrics of the elongated monastery and strengthens the orientation of the street leading to the monastery.

In a previously impacted 1,019.54 m² plot with frontal and lateral constraints, a fragmented building was proposed consisting of three volumes that responded to three main factors. The first one, to the trapezoidal geometry of the property, the second one to the surviving trees of the work previously done on the site, and the third one to enhance the views looking out from the property.

This project is a small, mixed-use building in a mixed-use enclave on the interface between the central city of Cape Town and the Bo Kaap. The site was initially vacant; bounded on three sides by existing heritage buildings in poor condition, whilst further down the street, a diverse collection of commercial buildings from the second half of the 20th century have replaced the older fabric.

Economy + Efficiency + Beauty. The plot and the programme of needs on which this architectural proposal is based establish very defined limits that require an accurate and rigorous response. The proposed project is strict in its development, but offers some unexpected elements that give the building a powerful and attractive identity.

Sabará Apartment / Felipe Rodrigues Arquitetura

Following an analysis of the existing unit and client demands, the project’s primary focus was on the property’s main social areas. By observing the apartment’s original plant, we found a pressing need to unify the living room and dining room, which were partially compartmentalized. The kitchen’s layout was also questionable, presenting evident issues in proportion and circulation. As in a game of logic, with few movements of the dividing lines, the resulting space turned out to be very interesting. The premises of the project were therefore defined.
