Holiday house built in 1980 at Cape St. Francis, Eastern Cape, one of two houses designed by Fagan for Swanie and Montu Swanepoel. Influenced by the Cape vernacular, the thatched house is arranged so that bedrooms all connect to the outside and have privacy as well as sea views. The roof edge follows the slope of the dune into which the house nestles, and tapers to achieve a relatively level ridge line. The house received a South African Institute of Architects Merit Award in 1983.
