Picardi Village / Chris de Hart Architects


Picardi Village is a group-housing scheme next to the well known KWV Head Office in Paarl, Western Cape.

It is developed as 8 typical double storey town houses in the classical old Cape Batavian Architecture with a colourful narrow European style cobbled road and individuality created by the juxtaposition of different size windows and doors with the façades forming a back drop to the human scale pedestrian road.

All the units are essentially lock-up-and-go with small garden spaces, all orientated north to capture maximum sunlight and heat.
