Description

Built in 1764, the Martin Melck House is one of the oldest standing buildings in Cape Town. Situated on Strand Street in the centre of the Mother City, the house was originally owned by a Prussian mercenary. Under his direction, the famous French architect, Louis Thibault was hired to design the building as a Lutheran church. The façade and interior of the building was constructed by German woodcarver, Anton Anreith. The building is one of only a few 18th century buildings that still stand in the city, and was declared a National Monument in 1936. Today, the building is used as an art and design gallery, hosting a series of temporary exhibitions.
