House Daitsh
Sea Point, Cape Town, Western Cape

Max POLICANSKY: Architect

Date:1944
Client:Mr A Daitsh
Type:Homestead
Status:Unknown

Built under Building Control (a post-war policy, which developed as a response to shortages of material. House limited to under 2 000 square feet (185.8 square metre) including garage). Contrary to common suburban practice at that time of walking through the garden to the house, the house was used to screen the garden. The site is a narrow, small site with the house built boundary to boundary.
