Rising above the driveway as if floating on air, this home ushers visitors beneath the top floor via a gated driveway and into the motorcade courtyard. It’s a home perfectly positioned to take in the best views of the surrounding golf course and wildlife estate to the north of Johannesburg, with the location chosen specifically for the security, community and sporting opportunities it offers.

“I wanted to live in an architectural masterpiece,” the owner reveals. “I appreciate beautiful structures.”

And that meant something minimalist. “We believe less is more. When you look at the drawings, it’s actually a very simple home,” he says, describing the design as level and square. “The house almost looks like giant floating Lego blocks. It’s the exterior design feature I’m most proud of, because it plays with your logic.”
