Hazendal Homestead

April 28, 2021


Hazendal’s remarkable Cape Dutch Homestead, dating back 1790, has been sensitively restored and converted and now offers elegant winelands accommodation. Boasting period furniture, striking artworks and luxurious interior décor, this exclusive-use guesthouse can accommodate up to ten guests or more in five luxurious spacious suites.

We had the privilege to be part of this amazing refurbishment and restoration project of The Homestead, the new exclusive use guest house on the Hazendal farm. The lighting was designed to replicate the look and feel of the heritage building and we also had to adapt the design to accommodate the heritage restrictions. Most pendants are the original antiques, which were mostly restored. We chose to introduce small, almost invisible downlighters to each room, to draw attention to the featured elements. Art was another important element in the general areas. Here we specified a simple, high quality spotlight above each artwork, with good colour rendering. The upper levels have an amazing, thatched roof, which we lit up to accentuate a very soft, subtle LED glow.
