The floor to ceiling windows allow an unobstructed interior-exterior connection.The wooden grid encountered at the windows and eaves acts as blends and sets the tone to the composition. Another focus element is water, found here and there throughout the layout, be it in the pool or the waterfalls decorating the small oases around the house.

The house is a clear blend of simple volumes complemented by flawless lighting and natural elements. What intrigues is the porch passage over the pool, the elegant dining area extended in the vicinity of the pool and the terrace, decorated with a rough and abstract steel sculpture.

Opulent spa residence in South Africa

Designed by Nico Van der Meulen architects, this , believe it or not, 2 floor residence features a stunning open entrance layout that makes the inside spaces seem like outdoor spaces or terraces. The inside pool, prolonged outside, contributes to this impression, as does the stunning 2 story height living room. The choice of materials is minimalist to brutalist, with marble and strip stone on the inside and a gigantic, very arguable freestanding concrete frame the size of the whole structure, on the front terrace and attached to the residence by 2 beams. Aside from looking massive and even science-fiction-utopia/dystopia-like, this kind of concrete frame is the architects’ trademark. Urban Cabin by Fábio Galeazzo.

O diferencial fica por contas das fibras óticas, utilizadas por ela para tecer delicados arranjos de linhas resplandecentes, com um resultado é belíssimo. Disponíveis em diversas cores como ouro, bronze, verde, azul e framboesa, os papéis de parede vêm em rolos de 135 cm x 260 cm que podem ser aplicados repetidamente conforme a área desejada.

The dimensions of the plot (3.7 m wide x 25m long), its location (between neighbouring walls) and its orientation (N-S) dictated the development of this housing. Our proposed architecture attempts to take these shortcomings and try to turn them into positives. Modern art - nova68 modern design.
