In this home, we come across a very unique facade that mixes materials including glass, stone cladding and smooth cement walls. This introduces different materials, tones and textures to the facade, creating a very sophisticated and grand look and feel.
The glass used throughout the facade creates a wonderful transition between the interior and exterior spaces. It also allows natural light to flow through the interior space as well as fresh air.
The facade is also modern and minimalist, which creates a very chic and impressive impact!
This is a very modern design that is cheap and affordable to build at only R2 500 000.
This is a five-bedroom house with a kitchen, dining room, living room, three bathrooms, a single garage and of course, the butterfly roof.
The butterfly roof is very unique, but it's definitely a design style to look into. Do you see what a stylish effect it creates as well as how it packages the house below it so neatly and beautifully.
The roof works in harmony with the neutral tones used for the facade.
This is one of the smaller homes that we've seen, valued at R2 000 000. It features a double garage, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a scullery, an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room.
What more could you need?
Throughout these facades, you'll also notice that double garages are a prominent feature. Double garages allow cars, bicycles, skate boards and other items to be stored neatly out of sight. This completely enhances the facade, making it a tidy package.
The stone slabs that lead up to the front door are very functional and trendy!
