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.
Brazilian walnut floors glossy marble surfaces and a large fireplace greet you as you enter the large and open living room. Extravagant use of glass allows for a seamless connectivity with the outdoors along with ample natural lighting.
Yet step inside and you will come across elegantly placed stone surfaces beautiful exposed wooden beams that grace the ceiling and a tinge of copper here and there to invite the rustic exteriors indoors. A seamless amalgamation of the antique and the trendy the home exudes grace and tranquility.
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.
Marrying a sense of sophistication with old world charm the Cat Mountain Residence seems like an attempt to bring together the best of both worlds. And from where we sit Cornerstone Architects seem to have come up trumps in that exceptional endeavor!
It is not often that you encounter a deck space that is as appealing as the home itself. But in case of the it is the fabulous and fascinating deck area that has everyone’s attention. Presenting a perfect blend of form and functionality the place sports a remarkable hangout that comes with a stylish pool and ample room for an entire family.
There is absolutely no doubting the fact that renovation and restoration tasks are always more challenging for architects and designers than conjuring up a home from scratch. The restrictions placed by an existing structure make the task of a ‘makeover’ a creative challenge.
