A large modern home with spacious spaces and amazing views to the South and West.
The brief from the client was simple - They wanted a modern masterpiece that would be a landmark in the estate. A house that takes advantage of the best views over the reserves in the estate. We consolidated the owner's two neighbouring stands to give him a four bedroom, all en-suite house that is built for the entertaining family.
On the ground floor you're welcomed into a cavernous double volume entrance hall with views into the big garden and pool area. Open plan living includes a dining room, kitchen, TV room and an expansive patio which blurs the line between inside and outside. Apart from this we have a study as well as a formal lounge. All spaces open out onto either a balcony or garden and all have views to the south and western sides of the property.
On the first floor we have four bedrooms, all en-suite, overlooking the expanse of the nature reserve to the West of the property. The is also a Pyjama lounge. All bedrooms and the lounge have access to their own private balconies.
This is a contemporary home which fuses the modern elements as inspired by European architecture as well as using natural elements which speak of the surrounding areas - like the wood and the natural stone cladding which also bring back the warmth of being on the African continent. The home uses a number of green principals in it's design, namely, insulation, good orientation, rain water harvesting, solar energy harvesting and storage, good cross ventilation and more.
