Welcome to ‘villa sundowner’ as the former Admiral called his residence.
The sun sets behind the saddles of mountains stretching from Cape Point via Muizenberg peak towards table mountain. Visitors and residents get inspired sitting in the garden whilst seeing the face of the mountain shift colour. Reside where the wetlands meet the mouth of Zandvlei and the dunes lead to the shores. Gently rolling swells collide on the banks on perfectly calm days along the northern rim of false bay. Fierceful south east winds blast the flats rising to the north and north westerly storms invade across the same rocky faces where you see the rose sun set on the peacefull days.
The residence is a source of inspiration for aspiring artists today. The beautifully designed cape dutch building provides massive opportunity and chances to face and collaborate on artistic challenges.
All projects are run by the #Muizenberglovestories team today. We host the program called the ‘Admirals Artist Residence’, prepare breakfast and dinner. This enables all participating artists to set their focus entirely on their work practice and showcase their art.
