Description:

This is a book about Cape Town's interiors. It's about all kinds of places, from public buildings to centres of learning, places of worship to museums, that perhaps it never occurred to you to pop into, even just for a quiet moment. Spanning the centuries from the 17th to the 20th, the range is enormous. This is the book you don't have. Cape Town has a rich architectural heritage. Have you ever stopped for a moment and wondered what lies beyond the fagades of the buildings you most probably drive past every day? Our city like any other, is often just the wallpaper in our lives, and yet there's artistic, political, social, cultural, commercial and scientific life going on in those places; sometimes in extraordinary interiors. They might be characterized by a magisterial dome, a set of frescoes, a period look, a carved staircase, a collection of furniture, or a set of tiles. Hidden Cape Town is about these places, many of them the unsung heroes providing the backdrop to public life.
