Concrete Manufacturers Association (CMA) producer member, Revelstone, has supplied its Klompie Brick Cladding for cladding wall sections of a new lifestyle estate being built by Balwin Properties at Atlantic Hills in Cape Town. When completed in 2027, the estate will comprise 95 four-storey building blocks housing 1 354 apartments in one, two and three-bedroom layouts.

De Aan Zicht will be Balwin’s most iconic lifestyle centre in the Western Cape and its location gives it a cutting edge. Perched on top of a hill, it affords uninterrupted and panoramic views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, Lions Head and the Atlantic Ocean.   

“We wanted to create a signature trademark in the Western Cape and the Klompie Brick Cladding was a perfect fit. We have used it on another development and the result was simply stunning,” according to a Balwin representative.  “Similarly, the interior finishes at De Aan Zicht are simply unrivalled and are of top quality.”

Klompie Brick Cladding is one of 15 Revelstone cast-stone cladding options. Cast with concrete, it looks like an original clay klompie brick and is ideal for cladding feature walls.

 “It is a high performance and low maintenance product which costs considerably less than clay klompie. It can
be used for external or internal wall cladding, and is produced in a variety of colours and two thicknesses, 30mm or 75mm, ” says Revelstone managing director, Alex Cyprianos.

Several other precast concrete products are being used in the construction of De Aan Zicht. They include: hollow-core floor slabs and precast staircases (Portland Hollowcore); lintels and coping (Lintels for Africa); exposed aggregate pavers (Inca); parking and walkway paving (N1 Paving); and kerbing (Blueblok). Only 20 minute drive from the centre of Cape Town and close to the Durbanville Hills Wine Route, De Aan Zicht offers a host of lifestyle features including: a Montessori school; fibre and DSTV ready; 24 hour security with biometric access; a swimming pool; a spa; training science gym with trainer; function and conference rooms; a mini soccer field; and several other features.
