Where the mountains meet the sea at the home of Gwen and Gawie Fagan in Cape Town
Gawie Fagan is one of South Africa’s most renowned architects. His wife Gwen is a researcher and landscape designer who has contributed considerably to Gawie’s work. We visited the couple, who have been taking on life’s challenges together for 70 years now, in their house on the Atlantic coast, which they planned and built themselves. The Fagans discuss their first meeting, the start of their careers, the challenges of combining work and family, and their passion for architecture and plants.
