Surrounding canopy of the house seems to offer ample shade even on those hot and sunny days while the trendy armchairs allow you to kick back and relax. The décor chosen for the deck can not only brave the elements but seems like a perfect visual extension of the natural ambiance around.
The growing trend in modern design and architecture is to create homes that are one with their surroundings. Draped in a hood of green that offers plenty of seclusion the Southlands Residence in Vancouver is all about the perfect synergy between interiors and the exterior. Smartly placed concrete walls wooden partitions and sliding glass doors combine privacy with unabated views of the many sights and sounds outside.
The task of adding a fresh extension to this Victorian house was entrusted to the architects from Jackson Clements Burrows who did an impeccable job of striking the perfect balance between the interiors and the exterior.
In our quest for luxury not only high-rising panoramas adorned with Patricia Urquiola’s Tropicalia Cocoon Hanging Chairs have the power to amaze us bathrooms and pools speak the same language of hope for better design.

Were entrusted with a similar job when home owners of an eight-decade old residence in Noordwijk Netherlands opted for a modern overhaul. Bringing together its original ‘rustic’ elements with contemporary extensions is an example of a renovation that keeps the character of the home intact.

We have already showcased some gorgeous contemporary homes from Nico van der Meulen Architects and in Johannesburg is another one of these in this fabulous line of modern residences.

Sleek and stylish to the core the interiors of this affluent home are as appealing as the façade on the outside.
