The house is located on top of a certain sloping site in Johannesburg and thus, it elevates proudly above its surrounding. Originally, the house was a single-storey type of traditional house a second storey was added to the house.
The addition of a second storey, of course, is not the only thing done since the houseâ€™s style was also modernized and in modernizing the houseâ€™s style, they prioritized the views, all the while ensuring that natural light could penetrate every room.
The very idea of elongating the house was birthed upon by thoroughly studying the existing planâ€™s layout. The concept resulted in a lengthened facade which framed the landscape.
Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, the stunning house has frameless folding doors which allow for a transparency on the houseâ€™s two longest facades which make the contemporary house look very unique. In addition, the houseâ€™s layout also promises a view of a golf course from nearly every room.
The design which is narrow and long in form was also successful in merging the houseâ€™s interior and exterior. The house also has a Koi pond and of course, it helps make the house look more naturally beautiful.
Aside from having a Koi pond, the house also has well-designed open-plan double volume spaces. A glass staircase and suspended bridges pierce the double volume space.
The architects were also quite successful in ensuring that the house blends in with the surrounding by keeping with natural colors and materials. Also offering an unobstructed view to a park, the house is unquestionably one of the houses with the most astounding designs in Johannesburg.
