Johannesburg, South Africa is the beautiful setting for this next amazing architectural masterpiece. Designed by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects, this 1,400 sqm residence in Eccleston Rd, Bryanston, stands tall on a sloped terrain, which was the reason for constructing a large basement as a base for the structure on the lower side of the building. Cantilevering volumes and a concrete beam support the visual appeal alongside the rust-like intrusions and portions clad with unfilled travertine. A koy pond guards the entrance, while an illuminated glass staircase can be seen through immense windows. The lounge is a double story space punctured by a 4 meter long fireplace. On the other side, the dining room can be seen and an open kitchen connects the two rooms. Features like a tennis court, a raised swimming pool or the gym and spa facilities transform this unequaled building into a luxurious residence. A wine cellar makes the picture perfect home whole, while the pyjama lounge with its own kitchenette on the first floor accentuates the fact that this is where the childrenâ€™s suites are. The master bedroom opens on to a panoramic terrace, like all the other bedrooms and lounges of the house do. The north orientation allows plenty of sunshine and natural ventilation. Just think how it would be like not to have time to enjoy all the cool features of this house.
