VISI Great Spaces Tour: Stand 47

On Saturday 31 January 2015, we were thrilled to host our first-ever VISI Great Spaces tour at Stand 47 on Monaghan Farm, in association with Saint-Gobain.

The morning tour allowed VISI readers to meet VISI’s Deputy Editor Annemarie Meintjes, design maverick Gavin Rooke (one of the driving forces behind Stand 47) and Stand 47 architect Karlien Thomashoff.

After exploring the house with a glass of Graham Beck Brut and a slice of chocolate cake in hand, readers were treated to a thorough overview from Gavin and Karlien about the history of Stand 47, what drove the project, what materials and design thinking went into the house, as well as what the outcomes were, both expected and unexpected.

With opportunities to ask questions of Annemarie, Gavin and Karlien, readers were not only able to experience a great space that VISI so enjoyed profiling, but also find out how to build a similar house themselves.

As a parting gift, readers took home the latest issue of VISI and a bottle of Graham Beck Brut.
