This is what happens when owner of huge site (10,000 sqm/~2,5 acres) hires talented architects to build him beautiful dream house in the wild. Nico van der Meulen Architects designed amazing House Tsi in Mooikloof, near city of Pretoria in South Africa.
As we heard from the architects, owner requested visually extraordinary house with one very important feature, indoor swimming pool. "The relaxed attitude of the client and the large site (10 000m²/~2.5 acres) provided the architects with a golden opportunity to explore the home three-dimensionally with advanced 3D computer software, and fuse the programmatic requirements into the 3D model. The outcome was a design where form meets function. Enhancing the structure are the incorporation of sun-orientation, circulation, open-plan living areas, view orientation and privacy."
An amazing dream house in the wild, perfectly fits into South African landscape. It's simply perfect for people who love to experience the nature, far away from concrete jungles but still keep this feeling of contemporary architecture around them.
"The interior design team from M Square Lifestyle Design ensured that finishes and fittings accentuated the architecture of the home. All fittings were specifically designed and made to suit the architecture of the house. “The interior reflects the exterior with intersecting planes creating points of interest. The exposed steel roof trusses, steel I-beams, and the bent steel staircase tie the interior with the exterior and refer to the quasi industrial aesthetic of the home,” explains Phia van der Meulen of M Square Lifestyle Design."
