Wright House was designed by Elmo Swart Architects and is located in Durban, South Africa. The project involved an addition to a three bedroom traditional cottage which included two studies, a new bedroom, an entertainment space and an art gallery. The extension is highly modern, has a fluid form and features large windows which ensure beautiful views of the lush natural environment. Seen on designboom,this home mixes old and new in a truly spectacular way, making it hard for anyone to remain indifferent when confronting with this design. The art gallery was built as a transparent tunnel connecting the entrance to the valley on the opposite site. An original cantilevered volume generates a parking space below, large enough for two cars. The interiors are as interesting as the facade would suggest.
