List of Projects


Established: 1934
Ended: 1952


This partnership, between HB HOBBS and FP BONIEUX in Durban, produced some interesting examples of modern architecture. The style was streamlined and the materials used were concrete, steel and glass. Buildings such as Hollywood Court (1937) represent the work of the firm in the 1930s. The partnership commenced in about 1934, becoming HOBBS, BONIEUX & PARTNERS in about 1952. By 1969 FJS ROUGIER had become a partner and the name changed to HOBBS, BONIEUX & ROUGIER.
