CAPE DUTCH ARCHITECTS
As "Cape Dutch Architects", Beverley Hui Architects designs Cape Dutch House plans in both modern and traditional styles. The Cape Dutch style is a vernacular style developed in the Cape by Dutch and French settlers in the 17th and 18th centuries. A salient feature of the Cape Dutch architecture style is the thatched roof and central gable of the symmetrical facade, with the gable of each house being plastered in a unique design to become the signature of the house. The photo on the left shows "Le Providence" which was built by the French settlers to the Capearound the 18th century. Modern Cape Dutch style houses are similar to the traditional ones, but the gable has typically been simplified, and modern style verandahs with concrete beams added. The photo on the right shows a typical modern Cape Dutch style house, designed by Beverley Hui Architects. The old Cape Dutch floor plans are usually U-shaped or I-shaped. These U-shaped or I-shaped house plans have been adapted by Beverley Hui Architects to be suitable for the modern lifestyle.

The Cape Dutch House plan started with a T-shaped architecture design with a gable in the center of the front facade. Later a wing was added to form an H-shaped house plan. U-shaped architecture designs were popular closest to Cape Town, again with a gable in the center of the entrance elevation. Modern Cape Dutch architecture designs are often U-shaped with a pool in the middle.
