Gardens Cape Town house is a contemporary renovation and addition by Grobler Architects of a semi-detached Victorian cottage in the Gardens area in Cape Town, South Africa. Renovations to the cottage included conversion into a home office with guest suite. Period features and finishes were reinstated with new external timber doors, sash windows and shutters as well as new services, joinery and external landscaping.

An existing 1970’s extension to the rear of the property was then demolished with a new 3-storey 2,045 square foot (190 square meters) contemporary addition to the existing cottage. Accommodation included a basement double garage and an open-plan ground floor with kitchen, dining and living areas leading onto a terrace with koi pond and indigenous planting. The master bedroom was located on the first floor with planted terrace, dressing room and master bathroom with private courtyard.
