Prepared to take on the night entertainment a bar area like the one pictured below takes me personally on a roller coaster through I-want-one-land. Luxury meets black when a sumptuous nature is required but this example of highly contemporary style needs owners highly motivated to party.
One would assume that building a stylish and soothing retreat in a place like the New Forest National Park in UK is a delicate balancing act. Not only does the natural getaway need to be luxurious and contemporary on the inside but it also has to be a sustainable project.
The new and extended feature seems to steal the spotlight and falls in line with the trend of home owners opting for renovations clad in glass and protruding into a spacious backyard. The visual connectivity with the world outside combined with its contrasting presence makes the ‘glassy’ kitchen and family space an instant hit. A glass extension on the top level also promises unhindered views of the distant sea. A bespoke staircase with its stylish railing in white completes the list of fabulous additions to this striking.
Brilliant bright and sporting ample space the main challenge in designing and decorating this luxurious home came in the form of filling up all that space on offer! The designers had to be careful in ensuring a presence of visual and textural balance even as splashes of color brought in inviting warmth.
An inimitable thatched roof on top is the distinctive feature of the N House. Apart from the usual replacement of the damaged areas and the restoration of the basement the project also includes the addition of a new kitchen space. Bedrooms and bathrooms were expanded providing the residents of the house with more space. A new social area has been added with glass on three sides allowing for ample natural ventilation and unabated views.
While the interiors employ a largely neutral color palette with emphasis being placed on warm earthen tones the presence of flowing blue accents throughout the residence is pretty obvious. This gives both the interiors and the exterior an inimitable look and a distinct sense of playfulness.
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. Located on the side of a hilly terrain and surrounded by green canopy the home offers some wonderful views of the city below. Sleek and stylish to the core the interiors of this affluent home are as appealing as the façade on the outside.
