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.

St Leon 10 in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Article source: SAOTA

This home was designed for a family with 2 young sons who wanted a house which simultaneously created spaces for casual intimate family occasions or large get-togethers. The site allows for unprecedented views towards the 12 Apostle Mountains, Clifton Beaches and Robben Island. The building is cut into the slope with approximately 50% of its rear face below the natural ground level. The upper level floats over the essentially glazed South West facing first floor and this exaggerates the height of the building relative to the adjacent ground level.
