Chapter Two...

Beatrix Bosch is nothing, if not unconventional... And her approach to retirement has been testimony to that very ideal...

After more than 45 years living on Die Duin in Wilderness along the Garden Route in South Africa, Beatrix decided that it was time to think about her retirement. Her home on the Dune overlooking Wilderness beach was enormous and following the death of her husband Bossie in 2010, she was ready for change.

THE END OF AN ERA
Downsizing meant doing away with her incredible studio with panoramic views of the ocean and her first step was to set about arranging for the display of her most recent artworks at the nearby Wilderness Hotel, she then focussed her attention on locating and designing the perfect retirement home.

After looking at the options available along the Garden Route, she opted for a secure estate in George that offered convenience, security and lovely views of the Outeniqua mountains and so began the adventure of creating a space worthy of one of South Africa's favourite and most enduring artists.



Of course, there was no chance that Beatrix would meekly adopt a 'plot and plan' approach to her new life so with the help of her lifelong friend, architect Ernest Harper, she set about 'adapting' the estate's basic design to suit her needs.

What arose from the foundations was an incredibly bright and open space customised to showcase her anthology of art and memorabilia collected over the decades. Beatrix is an avid reader, so another specific requirement was to ensure that there were endless shelves for her immense book collection. A dedicated computer area, where she plans to explore the creation of art in a digital environment, occupies its own space and finally there is a superbly appointed, yet compact kitchen with easy access to the sunny courtyard outside.


LIVING WITH ART
Art and interior design go together like a hand in a glove and there is no doubting that Beatrix's new home forms the perfect backdrop to her incredible artworks. Although the exterior looks much like all the other homes in the estate, the interior pays homage to the interesting life that Beatrix has led, it is a celebration of her leather artworks, coupled with an easy open plan lifestyle where entertaining can still be done on a grand scale.
