Bruynzeel HouseThe Bruynzeel House is a work of art, celebrating 50 years

On Saturday, 27. October 2012 we had a joint golden jubilee celebration with Stellenbosch Museum and De Hoge Hoek (Bruynzeelhouse) at www.Landmarkhouse.com.
Champagne and a light meal were provided to music by Die Stellenboys. The well known architect, Wilhelm Krüger gave a talk on Stellenbosch architecture
It was a unique opportunity to have a closer look at the architectural gem, the Bruynzeel house, 18 Constantia Avenue, Dalsig . This exceptional home was built in 1962 by the Dutch timber trader, Kees Bruynzeel, and was designed by the Dutch architect Aard Bijl.

Dylan Lewis, internationally renowned sculptor from Stellenbosch, will be giving art lovers a unique experience by turning the town into an outdoor sculpture gallery. Not only will his life-size sculptures be viewed up close and personal, but in the setting Dylan will allow the animals depicted to claim back the area they once roamed freely. 23 life-size Dylan Lewis sculptures will be on display in and around the main areas of Stellenbosch, including the historic town centre and the communities of Idas Valley, Jamestown, Tennantville and Kayamandi from November 2008 until April 2009. Among these 'manifestations' of wildlife will be 21 big cats, a buffalo pair and one rhino. Paddy Bouma
