The brief was to design an outdoor area that guests could relax in, particularly during the colder winter months. It…

Plaisir wine and gin experience

For this project we were commissioned to convert a disused long house into a wine and gin tasting experience for the new owners of Plaisir wine farm, near Franschoek in South Africa.
