Longtime Friends Reunite to Transform an 80-Year-Old Cottage in Cape Town6 of 16

On the east side of the home, two large bay windows, their wood frames sandwiched between
concrete, have hinged side panels that open to let in breezes. "The bay windows are like two eyes," says Derek. "My favorite aspect of the house is at night when the lights are on, and they
 act like weird two-way mirrors. You can see it’s night outside, but they reflect the interior in a way that gives it a sense of being a completely different space."
