SIMPLICITY

HOME

Gabriel Fagan Architects, Founded in 1964 and located in Cape Town, provide Architectural services specialising in designing contemporary buildings and landscapes in sensitive contexts.

Simple dignity and fitness is what I have learnt from our vernacular architecture
and what has subconsciously been an inspiration in my own work.

Our design solutions are simple and honest

while being unique and appropriate for every context.

The Fagan's self built family HOME called "DIE ES"

is a good example where these principles come to the fore, since designing one's own home is an opportunity for experimenting and  un-compromised freedom of expression:

RELATION TO ENVIRONMENT

ECONOMY OF MEANS

 APPROPRIATE AND CONSISTENT DETAILING

HONEST USE OF MATERIALS

STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY

PROPORTION

SIMPLICITY 

HUMAN SCALE

PLASTICITY AND MODELLING
