La Motte – Pierneef à La Motte restaurant Franschhoek, photographed by Charles Russell (commercial photographer, Stellenbosch).
Capturing freshly built architectural spaces presents a challenging reality, as commercial spaces often require immediate access to marketing material in order to get the wheel rolling and generate public intrest.
A newly developed location takes time to settle into its surroundings; developing a seamless integration of architecture and landscape. The interior design elements are finely tuned and finally adopt a mature identity.
Once maturity is achieved, the space needs to be captured from afresh. Pierneef à La Motte has settled and developed a mature identity.
