OUR PROMISE:
T-SHIRTS IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER

We are so confident in our home’s ability to perform that we’re inviting people to stay in the home in the middle of a Highveld Winter without electrical heating and report back on their experience. When external temperature plummet outside, our home keeps itself warm by way of intelligent design and contemporary building materials. The cold stays out, the heat stays in. That means t-shirts all year round...




Live Temperature

Inside VS Outside


Stand 47 is built using Saint-Gobain wall and ceiling systems that are designed to keep you comfortable all year. Can a home keep itself cool in summer and warm in winter without the need for electrical cooling or heating? Our live temperature tracking shows how materials in our home maintain comfortable internal temperatures while external temperatures reach extremes. T-shirt weather indoors, 365 days a year.

LIVE POWER TRACKING

GRID CONSUMPTION VS PV SOLAR OUTPUT


Our home is connected to the National Power Grid but supplements its energy needs with Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. During the day, PV energy is fed into the home to lower energy consumption from the grid. Because internal temperatures are comfortable, the home’s total energy consumption cost is reduced. Our live Power Tracking shows how Stand 47 lowers energy demands and produces energy to offset costly energy bills. This comfort and peace of mind, leads to a greater sense of rest and relaxation.

UNDERSTATED, ELEGANT AND STYLISH.


1Dewald Prinsloo co-founded the bespoke gallery space EBONY (@ebonycurated) in 2007 along with Leonard de Villiers and Marc
Stanes. Their gallery spaces in Franschhoek and Cape Town showcase classic and contemporary fine art combined with exclusive, local product and furniture design. His interest in South African design that has equal parts of soul and sophistication, made him a great candidate for a Winter stay at Stand 47.

Stand 47 : What was your first impression of the house and did anything specific catch your attention?

Dewald: The sense of space and the comfortable warmth that I felt upon entering the home impressed me. I felt that this home managed to convey the qualities of stylish elegance while maintaining an understated look.

Stand 47 : How does the real thing compare with your expectations?

Dewald: It significantly exceeded my expectations.
2Stand 47 : Tell us about a night at Stand 47. Give us details!

Dewald: At 10 PM, the indoor temperature was 18 degrees, while outside it was a really cold 3! Despite the big difference from the outdoors to indoors, it was much warmer than I expected and quite cosy. The house was extremely comfortable at all times of the day and night.

Stand 47 : What is your opinion of the home next morning?

Dewald: Well, the house was so quite overnight so I slept really well. I had no idea that a house built without bricks could meet these levels of sophistication and performance. I am impressed by how warm and quiet the house is. A place where I could be productive and happy.
3Stand 47: Could you describe your favourite aspect of the home?

Dewald: I’ve loved every minute in this home; it’s calm, tranquil, inspiring. The positioning on the farm and on the stand itself is perfect and the living experience over the past two days has been brilliant.

Stand 47: And finally, we have to know, would you live in a home like this?

Dewald: Yes! And yes, again!
