On 28 May 2017, a devastating fire gutted the Lanzerac Hotel in Stellenbosch, one of Cape Town’s upmarket towns. The fire damaged the hotel’s reception, governor’s hall, craven lounge, bar and offices. The area is considered a heritage site, which made the project somewhat complicated, especially making the hotel look like it did before the fire.
