The Design Framework for
LagoonBay Lifestyle Estate is consistent with the Building
Design Guidelines of the provincial government of the Western
Cape as is contemplated in the policy framework for the Western
Cape Coastal zone.
In essence it recognizes the historic architectural
qualities that have evolved over more than 200years in
the Cape. Buildings are to reflect this history in the
building form, roof type, colour, texture, etc. Building
form must be constructed consistent with the traditional
Cape building form or the ‘letter of the alphabet’ namely
I; T; U; H or variations thereof. Roofs must be double
pitch and gray in colour.
Corrugated iron ‘s’ profile,
gray slate or thatch must be used. Building colour must be
light earth colors.
External walls must be plastered and painted. Limited use
of sandstone plinths are allowed with special permission
of the LagoonBay architect. The use of verandahs, (stoeps),
pergolas and other traditional building elements is encouraged.
