The modern urban trend is to make use of every inch of available space and most homeowners do believe that bigger is indeed better. But the last few days have shown us that all the glitz and glamour cannot match a serene retreat that allows you to once again get in touch with nature’s unadulterated goodness. If the Naked House in Ko Samui is all about spectacular views the in the suburbs of Sydney becomes one with the views! Its trendy black exterior allows it to blend effortlessly with the lush green treetops and.
Like many of the lavish residences that we have previously seen from this fabulous residence is filled with decor that is trendy and timeless. With the balanced use of rock steel wood and glass the exclusive house exudes inviting warmth.
The house welcomes you with a walkway that is clad in Balau wood and meanders its way past a serene koi pond as it leads you from the street to the front of the house. The lower level features an open living area with a plush living space an ergonomic dining area and a kitchen clad in Ceasarstone. Tom Dixon pendants and lighting fixtures from Foscarini enliven the space with their bold metallic accents while a sleek staircase in the corner leads to the private quarters tucked away on the top floor.
The first level incorporates a dining and kitchen area that opens up towards the terrace while a spacious living area is tucked away on the opposite side. The top floor holds the twin offices for the couple along with a deck area that offers lovely views of the gorgeous landscape around the house.
Large frameless folding doors ensure that the transition from the public areas to the porch is both seamless and unabated. The private quarters are housed on the top level with four en suite bedrooms located on one side and the three children’s bedrooms on the other. A suspended walkway links both of these wings while plush decor accentuates the opulence of the home.
From a distance the ingenious roof reminds us of Japanese origami creations and transforms the otherwise simple nature retreat into a dramatic eye-catching structure that is set against an equally awe-inspiring tropical countryside.
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.
