About Blockplan

Block Plan Architecture and Interior Design is a design studio based in Cape Town. We work on a wide range of projects, from high-end residential homes and custom-designed furniture to apartments and commercial spaces. Our design approach is informed by the nature of block plans: drawings of buildings and layouts in their most simplified form. Block Plan Architecture and Interior Design therefore focuses on transforming simple, essential ideas and executing concepts in intelligent ways.

We are interested in using materials in their natural form, often including timber and raw steel, but with strong attention to detail. We look for creative, sustainable design opportunities, offer support from sketch designs to construction detailing, and guide projects through council approval processes. Our focus is on high-impact, honest design that has integrity and that will outlast fads and fashions.

The Damian consists of only four units. Each of the four units is expansive and stretches over multiple levels. Square and robust from the outside, the building’s northern facade features giant concrete planter boxes with cascading greenery softening the edges of the building.

Residential Design

The main aspect of the brief was to develop a spacious family home capturing the magnificent views of the Simonsig mountain range and untouched wetlands. We have created a building that invites you on a journey and unveils itself as you explore its magical courtyards and spaces.
