House Lipschitz - Noordhoek
Click to view large map
HOOGTERP designed Noordhoek at the corner of 7th Avenue and 4th Street Lower Houghton; his contribution to the posh suburb below the ridge – not a white flat-roofed cubist villa associated with l'Esprit nouveau via MARTIENSSEN – but a white double-storey gable house in stockbroker’s Cape Dutch for Maurice Lipschitz, member of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange: teak windows, half-shutters, north stoep and a giant south gable to address the driveway entrance.

The house has been restored and is in beautiful, pristine condition.(2011). Information kindly sent to us by Marius Lombard.
