Modern House in South Africa

Gorgeous house with only the necessary rooms, open plan and airy. The owners required only four rooms, all suites, a living area, and an office studio.  Nico van der Meulen Architects designed the house as a simple rectangular shape with the living rooms in the center of the house and surrounded by a pond and pool. From the porte cochere one walks over the pond to the front door, through the hall, dining room and family room to the pool on the north side.  The pond  surrounds the dining room on two sides. Broken slabs of granite with steel sheets functions as steps between the dining room , hall, family room and kitchen. My favorite part of the house is the kitchen and lanai area. The kitchen is enclosed with frame-less doors which opens up to the lanai area that faces the garden. The modern house has been decorated very neutral using white and black with pops of bold color.
