Brian Road in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

Nico van der Meulen Architects transformed what was originally a 1970s house into a home ideal for the 21st century.  The architectural firm created an atrium and a moat around the hall and dining room, with a curtain of water falling past a cut-out in the atrium wall.  The end result is a beautiful breakfast garden to the east of the kitchen, overlooking the moat and water feature.  The family and dining room opens onto a spacious 13 m x 6 m lanai through frame less folding doors – an excellent idea as this doubles the space available for entertaining during the long South African summers.  The interior walls were removed to create a spectacular double volume living area and to form a more seamless floor plan.  The roof over the lanai is suspended from a two-storey-high beam traversing the pool.  The outcome is a contemporary home that is open-plan with north-facing layout ideal for family living and entertaining.
