Drostdy Flats
Durban, KwaZulu-Natal

HALLEN and DIBB: Architect
Date:1963
Type:Flats
Status:Unknown
Street:Silverton Road

Drostdy flats are a youthful and lyrical example of HALLEN’s eclectic ability: investing a Cape Dutch atmosphere of whitewashed domesticity in dappled shade with Brazilian ebullience, for a subtropical setting. The sound functional basis for his extravagant gestures enables them to sustain the pristine surprise of first acquaintance.

(B E Biermann in UIA, 1985: 61)
