Architecture Design of House In Blair Atholl
Description About The Project
House In Blair Atholl designed by Johanessburg based Nico Van Der Meulen Architects that blend a clean contemporary aesthetic with a more textured traditional style in their design for this house to create an exquisite private residence in Johannesburg, South Africa. The home designed in 2015 and offers a countryside feel but with clean lines, bold geometry and intricate interior design. Indeed, this double storey home boasts nearly 750 m² under roof and surrounded by serenity and tranquility. Free from high boundary walls and electric fencing which is customary to most luxurious houses in Johannesburg, this design is different.
On the other hand, orientating the house Northwards allows for the home to be naturally lit all year round and provides expansive views of the garden from nearly every room. While the overhangs provide protection from the sun during the summer. They also ensure that the sun still penetrates the rooms during the winter months.
Once insides, the double volume entrance hall completely surrounded by glass, draws in as it’s bordered by two double garages on either side. The symmetry of the timber wrapped garages highlights the transparency of the house as views of the garden captivate. In addition to this, enveloped in natural wood, the garage doors disappear into a timber wall paying tribute to Werner’s ability to transform the everyday ordinary into an extra ordinary design feature.
Moreover, the spacious lanai accommodates a braai, bar and seating area making it ideal for entertaining while the swimming pool is integral into the design of the lanai and even extends beneath the cantilevered floor slabs. A bridge with frameless glass balustrade connects the two wings of the house while also maintaining a sense of privacy for the main bedroom which located on the Eastern wing of the house.
