Stratfords is rooted in the rich history and heritage of the Eastern Cape. Al and Iris Stratford, both from 1820 settler families – Al of British, Iris of German descent, grew up in close association with the Xhosa people, speaking the language and having a deep understanding of the indigenous culture. This intermingling of diverse roots, history and heritage is expressed in the architecture, and interior design.

Designed by Al Stratford, Stratfords is a radical yet carefully considered essay in architecture, a statement embracing nostalgia for yesterday blending seamlessly with his vision of hope for the future, in the rich cultural diversity of South Africa.
