House Lermer “Happy Days” 2015 / 2016
Erf 2392, Betty’s Bay
A single storey house, built around 1943, of which the authentic core served as a radar station monitoring room during WW II. This heritage site forms part of a historical grouping of this period in the immediate area as well as other radar sites along the South African coastline. It is of historic and associative significance. As the appointed heritage and architectural practitioner on the project, the challenge was to allow a third layer of accretions which would ensure historical preservation while enhancing architectural integrity.
