At Beverley Hui architects we design residential buildings in both modern and traditional Cape Dutch styles. The residential Cape dutch house plan typically is formed in a U or H shape, which creates the best shelter from the Cape weather. The architect has adapted these into modern house plans. This photo shows a modern interpretation of the Cape Dutch House and gables by the Architects. The architect has modernised the gables.
