House in Blair Atholl, South Africa by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Article source: Nico Van Der Meulen Architects

The double volume entrance hall completely surrounded by glass, draws you in as it’s bordered by two double garages on either side. The symmetry of the timber wrapped garages highlights the transparency of the house as views of the garden captivate you even before you have entered. Enveloped in natural wood, the garage doors disappear into a timber wall paying tribute to Werner’s ability to transform the everyday ordinary into an extra ordinary design feature.

Brief:

The Brief was to create a spectacular home which encapsulated the expansive 360 degree mountain and sea views.  Though views out were paramount this needed to be carefully balanced with the required privacy from within.  The living areas were to be open plan – enhancing everyday life.  “The architecture needed focus on creating a contemporary, uncluttered and sculptural building,” said Tamaryn Fourie, senior associate and project team member.

House Sar in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

Located within the leafy suburb of Atholl, Johannesburg, stands the latest contemporary stunner from Nico van der Meulen Architects.

Designed by the highly acclaimed Werner van der Meulen, House Sar encapsulates luxury, comfort and functionality in a minimalist architectural setting.

The clients approached Nico van der Meulen Architects with a modest single storey pitched roof house. Limited views and access to the garden resulted in the rooms being dark, and thus the clients main request was to transform this house into a light-filled open plan contemporary home.  Ensuring that every room was naturally lit became the challenge for Werner van der Meulen, but one he proved could be done.

House in the Mountains in Cederberg , South Africa by Wolff Architects

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Article source: Wolff Architects

The site

The site for this house is on a farm deep in the Cederberg mountains in South Africa, a landscape dense with biodiversity of the Cape Floristic Region.

The setting for the house was determined by three factors, firstly a ‘bald’spot in the vegetation was selected (in consultation with botanists) to minimise the impact of the house on the flora.

Secondly, since the clients prefer to live outdoors as far as possible, “rooms”were found in the natural landscape which could accommodate outdoor cooking and eating, living and sleeping. The built part of the house facilitates living in the unbuilt part of the house.
