BIG IDEA #2

TREAT THE STOEP AS A ROOM

House and Leisure Before and After - - RENOVATION #6 -

A cov­ered stoep is a prac­ti­cal­ity in the coun­try. Built on the site of the orig­i­nal, Klein Mod­der­riv­ier’s stoep avoids di­rect, bak­ing sun and is shel­tered from the wind. It’s a so­cia­ble

place that ac­com­mo­dates a large ta­ble and dif­fer­ent nooks cre­ated with couches, cush­ions

and Per­sian rugs. ‘We spend lots of time there: early morn­ing cof­fee, long lunches, and sun­down­ers over­look­ing the moun­tains,’

says Natalie.
