wildetecture muizenberg beach signal box



The Site  A Historical Landmark In Muizenberg Rail Way Originally Designed By Architect JC Trully. And Was A Manual Signal Box As Part Of This Historic Stations Mechanics.

Agatha Christie, Who Wrote In 1922: “Whenever We Could Steal Time Off… We Took The Train And Went To Muizenberg, Got Our Surf Boards And Went Surfing Together.”
The Railways, As Part Of Cecil John Rhodes’s Ambitious Plans For The Cape, Reached Muizenberg In 1882. The Line Was Direct From Park Station In Johannesburg Through To Muizenberg Without Passing Through Cape Town.

Design Concept And Intent  Was Focused On Rebuilding This Piece Of Heritage, As Per Jc Tully Original Design Focusing On A Modern Edwardian Style Approach, We Adapted And Created A Georgian Baroque Style Conservatory With A Few Romantic Curves, Resembling The Finer Arch Details Of Its Historic Past
A Deck Creates Viewpoints Both Off The Railway And Onto The Beach.
Mountain Backdrop With Seaside Views ,  Glass Conservatory Floats Off The Space So Not To Interrupt But Compliment.
