Spread across three different levels a central courtyard that flows into the rear garden and sparkling recessed lighting put the final touches on a South African home where outdoor living takes precedence.
The new rear addition of the house contains a kitchen social zone dining area living space and extends into the deck and swimming pool outside. On the inside the brick veneer is painted in white giving the home textural brilliance even while ensuring that the contemporary color scheme of the home is left undisturbed.
A simple clean color scheme relying on white ensures that the interior is as contemporary and understated as possible. Concrete overhangs add to the seemingly pavilion style of the home where traditional boundaries are done away with.
Nestled in the fertile valley of and surrounded by beautiful mountains and untouched woods the striking contemporary home is a confluence of three separate wings each designed in the form of a square. At the heart of this expansive home is a three-sided hearth that delineates spaces gives each wing its individual style and becomes the focal point of the open living area.
Another one by German-based Baumraum. Neutral tones are always a great option to pick when we’re working with nature! They have a sleek look and matte surface that allows the rest of the home to be illuminated with warm yellow lights. Different styles of wood pair with each other really beautifully and have the power to create a fairytale-like wooden treehouse that will be adored by children and fully appreciated by adults!
Offering just that but with a hint of originality and contemporary gray panache is the in designed by Steffen Welsch Architects. Inspired by Austrian architect Hermann Czech’s philosophy that sees ‘Architecture as background’ rather than an entity that stands out visually the new family home is all about understated elegance.
But that is not the only space that was altered to meet the growing demands of an urban family. The more rigid kitchen of the house with a counterproductive U-shaped kitchen layout was replaced by a new kitchen where a smart worktop and ergonomic island combine modern minimalism with industrial overtones.
