Gawie Fagan is known as one of South Africa’s most celebrated architects, while he and wife Gwen, who is also his creative partner, are known for their seamless integration of built structures into the surrounding natural environment.

For the latest instalment of In Residence by Nowness, director Gavin Elder, known for his extensive documentation of synth-pop legends Duran Duran, captures the couple in their labyrinthine Camps Bay pad. Known locally as Die Es (The Hearth), the building sits neatly in the hillside surround and boasts panoramic views of the sea from one side and mountains to the other.
