Lights by Linea: A Well-Designed Transformation at Leinster Hall

Leinster Hall, one of the last four remaining historical manor houses in this part of Cape Town (and declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation), reflects a well-designed transformation.

This beautiful old heritage building, dating back to the 1800s, has been lovingly restored to return the grand old dame to its original splendour.

Striking design elements in combination with modern finishes were subtly introduced to create a contemporary-classic feel, representing the brand DNA of its progressive new owners.

Leinster Hall has truly become a ‘home from home’ office environment. Here client and guest can either converse in a relaxed atmosphere on a shaded patio with Table Mountain or a Living Green Wall as back-drop or meet in one of the luxurious meeting rooms (from ‘Distrik Ses’ to ‘Leeukop’ and ‘Bo-Kaap’) or personal office with state of the art technology.

A massive privilege and a true gem to be seen.


Leinster Hall was built in the 1850s by Sebastian Hofmeyr on a plot of land that previously formed part of the farm Weltevreden. The outbuildings date from the same period.

The building has predominantly Georgian architectural features and is one of the last four remaining historical manor houses in this part of Cape Town. It has an exceptional garden and a fine Victorian verandah…


A beautiful transformation of this classic retreat.
