Conjured up and brought to life by designer and of Knightline Developments this fabulous house is all about becoming a part of the existing landscape. Instead of opting for an ultra-modern and sleek residence the homeowners wanted a house that had a more tranquil ambiance.
Over the years we have seen some of the most expansive and exceptional homes from South Africa conjured up and brought to life by the ingenious folks at Nico van der Meulen Architects. Set in a lovely landscape that is filled with natural goodness this gorgeous house in is another wonderful example of their inimitable style.
An entrance hall that leads to the main living areas is placed in between two large double garages that give the home a distinct street façade. A lovely koi pond and a beautiful entryway leading to this main hall set the tone for the colors and the design style used to shape the interior.
Designed to meet the needs of a couple (both geologists who now mostly work from home) the residence embraces a relaxed and vibrant appeal. The color scheme is largely kept neutral with simple grays whites and warm wooden tones dominating the interior.
Minimal and understated the decor is also kept as simple as possible with large pendants and paper lanterns stealing the show. While the first floor houses the private spaces the lower level holds an open-plan living area along with a smart bedroom that leads to the revamped garden. With sliding glass doors translucent panels and shoji screens the switch between privacy and open flowing interiors is seamless indeed.
Incorporating passive cooling techniques and blurring the lines between the indoors and the exterior the house actually encourages its residents to spend as much time away from the hustle and bustle of modern life as possible. With understated class frugality and eco-sensibility the Ozone House truly stands out from the pack!
Oversized windows large glass doors three expansive terraces and smartly placed skylights that usher in ample ventilation ensure that the line between the indoors and the world outside is blurred. Taking advantage of the lovely city skyline views outside the focus is kept on creating a vibrant home that allows you to take in the many sights and sounds of the iconic city.
