“I like the idea of taking something that’s in decline and giving it another life,” says architect Gavin Smitsdorp. He made extensive use of existing and salvaged materials when redesigning this three-bedroom home that’s clad with corrugated iron. This eco-friendly, recycling philosophy kept the building costs under R450 000.
