Brief

# “The clients, a couple from New York wanted a holiday home in the Southern hemisphere for summer vacations. Aware of contemporary architectural trends, they requested a sculptured building with clean horizontal lines, large areas of glass and screens creating a space that is ‘open as well as private’. Their brief was a 2-bedroomed home with indoor / outdoor living spaces and a studio to be used in their photographic and film related occupations,” says Project Partner, Stefan Antoni.

AISJ New Aquatics Center in Johannesburg, South Africa by Flansburgh Architects

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: Flansburgh Architects

Design Challenges:

The challenge was to create an economic covering for a state-of-the-art pool. Johannesburg sits on a plateau known as the “highveld,” 5,000 feet above sea level, with earth rich in iron ore, causing frequent lightning strikes. Although the climate is temperate, night-time temperatures can drop significantly.  The new pool was required to be both covered and heated.

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

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

When Nico van der Meulen Architects received the brief, it presented a fairly large house with a separate accommodation for the client’s 3 adult kids. To accommodate that and thanks to its location in a private estate, the house was designed to be open to the street with a glass link across a koi-pond as the entrance which separates the guest wing and son’s suite from the rest of the house.

House Tsi, Mooikloof in South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

When the owners of this home approached Nico van der Meulen Architects, their brief was simple: “to design a stunning, cutting-edge, contemporary home”. The only absolute requirement was that it had to be visually extraordinary with an indoor swimming pool.

The relaxed attitude of the client and the large site (10 000m²/~2.5 acres) provided the architects with a golden opportunity to explore the home three-dimensionally with advanced 3D computer software, and fuse the programmatic requirements into the 3D model. The outcome was a design where form meets function. Enhancing the structure are the incorporation of sun-orientation, circulation, open-plan living areas, view orientation and privacy.

The clients, a young couple, wanted a dynamic and striking home, primarily for themselves, with guest accommodation separated from their own living areas. The property views towards the north and west over Fresnaye as well as at the rear of the site. The site falls very steeply and due to the high elevation of the road and the restrictions on the building form, the house is raised above the property on high columns.
