Architectural Showcase for Residential Developments
The client requested a spacious and luxurious four bedroom steel , glass and concrete residence with an emphasis placed on the design of the living rooms.
The design of this contemporary glass house was inspired from the estate guidelines which forbid the use of burglar bars. Toying with the idea of protecting a house that’s already secured led to the exploration of large cantilevered boxes enclosed by black steel bars.
When Nico van der Meulen Architects was called in for the additions, alterations and renovations to an outdated face brick house in Limpopo, the most obvious factor to take into account was the excessive heat. This project required optimal solutions to ensure it was suitable for the hot conditions.
