House Sher in Johannesburg, South Africa by Eftychis Architects

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Article source: Eftychis Architects

House is defined along an axis which separates the living areas on the south side and the Gym and guest bedroom on the north.

The linear axis is pronounced by a tower-like lobby and ends with a natural filtered eco-pool as the focal point. Concrete and facebrick walls flank the space from which a steel staircase hangs from steel dowels defined by the meandering skylight above.

Cliff house / Flying container house in Johannesburg, South-Africa by Architecture for a change (pty)ltd

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Article source: Architecture for a change (pty)ltd 

The main idea was to create a lightweight, off the grid, and affordable house. The design philosophy relates to critical regionalism within architectural theory. The South-Africa residential design market is still stuck with conventional building methods that aren’t suitable for our environment (colonial building methods). We had to analyse our current solutions, available technology and where the future is heading before we could start designing this house.

Project Description

The contemporary home is located on a steep hill in Ebotse Golf Estate, Gauteng. Both the Site and the Client Brief called for a design which included extensive visual accessibility of the surrounding environment.

Gottsmann Architects utilised the Site’s steep gradient to design a home that would host predominant views toward the lake and golf course below. These wide panoramic views inspired the project name: House Vista.

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.

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.
