Building this home opened up the opportunity to experiment and be creative – and the resulting single-storey, eco-friendly family home embraces new green building technologies, contemporary architecture and interior design, and an avant garde injection of street art
Designed by Studios Architects, and recently built, this home is truly representative of the architecture of its time. It is modern, eco-friendly and has an industrial style that beautifully marries elements like wood, metal and stone
Situated in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, this three-storey dwelling has many positive features including its great location that enables magnificent views, well thought out eco-friendly elements and spacious interiors. From the planning stages through to the final touches of decorating, this home was created with its inhabitants’ lifestyle requirements in mind
Nothing is as wonderful as going home after a long hard day at the office and being able to sit back and relax in a beautiful home that feels like a vacation spot. The client’s brief focused on building a green, cost effective and compact home, which is suitable for most family types
What makes this home of particular interest is its immaculate architecture, and structural focal points evident throughout its exterior and interior spaces. Good architecture often creates a seamless design and flow from the interior towards the exterior of the home, and vice versa. This flow is further enhanced by the well-chosen furnishings and interior decor used throughout – either creating a complementary style or an eye-catching, contrasting design.
