Bomax: Hermina Place
Known for their sleek, minimalist architectural approach, Cape Town-based Bomax Architect’s latest project, Hermina Place, is a perfect example of how the studio combines clean lines with organic shapes for the ultimate statement-making design.
Characterised by expansive spaces that open up to the outdoors, the contemporary L-shaped building sports fluted exterior finishes and premium interior finishes that create architectural interest without being overpowering or showy.
The sophisticated build is, of course, complimented by a neutral interior palette and the choice of designer furniture pieces.
“This modern luxury home incorporates classical interior influences that pay homage to the Constantia region’s rich Cape heritage,” explains Bomax Architects.
“The expansive double-volume living room adds an air of grandeur. The impressive glazing height captures the sweeping horizon of the Constantiaberg mountains to the North, at the back of the Table Mountain National Park.
“Hermina Place represents a contemporary interpretation of a farmhouse manor, the original Wineland’s architecture—creating a design that captures both past and present.”
Founded by Dion Max Walters in 2000, Bomax’s extensive portfolio includes local and international design projects, including commercial buildings, upmarket residential homes, retail interiors and spatial urban designs.
“Bomax is a firm of dedicated and experienced architects pursuing a unique contemporary style of sustainable, minimalist architecture,” says the company.
For this project, as with all their other projects, the studio once again employed Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s less-is-more approach to create a striking design that is characterised by its minimalist approach to modern living.
