We were presented with the opportunity to convert the historic cellar building, a long narrow Cape Dutch barn into Buitenerwachting’s new wine tasting centre.
The building had some beautiful features, such as chunky yellowwood beams, thick walls and a Corkoleum floor.
On entering the space a long wine bar with a feature marble block leads ones eye down the building to an intimate seating area with fireplace. On the opposite end we introduced a small wine shop with a solid oak block in the center displaying wine and branded merchandise.
With the new layout the interior flows onto a broadened veranda in front with seating and steps down to the lawns and gardens which now see over 1000 visitors visiting on a Saturday.
