Synopsis
It’s a brilliant solution, really. Two houses created out of one, with a communal area in the back and enough space to call your own. That’s how things roll with this historical rebuild in Robertson, a house that friends and fellow architects Richard Perfect and Jan Desseyn bought a few years ago. The pair, friends since university days and now business associates who’ve shared an office space for several years, had discussed going in on a weekend getaway spot in the country. ‘We had this idea of sharing our resources, both financially and creatively, and of finding a big rambling farmhouse to convert into a space where we could each host our friends and potter about doing the country thing,’ says Richard. ‘When Jan called to tell me that he’d found a place that could really work, I drove through from Cape Town to see it the next day.’
