House Mitchell Hermanus

Created as a  holiday home for their extended family (spanning three generations), House Mitchell borders, the Fernkloof  Nature Reserve in Hermanus. A consistent  less is more aesthetic throughout  provides a backdrop for the verdant scenery. The family has focused on high quality, low maintenance finishes, all floors are sealed brick, Pure cotton white bed linens & towels, Stainless steel appliances and matt Black Forman Brand Aluminium products with laminated safety glass.

The original building was remodeled to include accommodation for the entire extended family. The  C shape, has all (sliding) aluminium doors, opening to the lush garden and pool areas. On entering the  front door opens to a comfortable open plan shared space, which houses a lounging area, dining  areas, a family kitchen and scullery.  Shelves hold board games, bottles of wine and a massive fireplace is well stocked with wood for colder days. Large scale Aluminium windows and doors  in the living area frame views of the Fernkloof nature reserve.

Three family pods, each comprise  a bunk room, double bedroom, bathroom and basic kitchenette. A larger self contained grandparents suite, has an open plan bedroom/ lounge, plus  kitchenette and bathroom. A separate recreation space has been created for the younger generation.  Behind the house is a utility and laundry area.

Forman Brand  Aluminium systems with a matt black finish were used on the entire project, FORMAN 2a, FORMAN F8 & FORMAN F10 systems all with  Laminated safety glass, were custom configured for each opening.
