Stellenbosch House
Stellenbosch, Western Cape

Pius Edmund PAHL: Architect
Date:1983
Type:Homestead
Status:Unknown

The two PAHL houses (House Dessau – 1933) and (Stellenbosch House – (1983) are 50 years apart. It would be too easy to say that they show a development of stylistic metamorphosis from the 30s in Germany to the 80s in Stellenbosch. PAHL himself says the fundamental tenets of the Modern Movement as he knew it transcend fashion and style and that adaptations to local climate, lifestyle, and available technology are all that is necessary by way of change and development.
