We designed this contemporary house in response to our clients brief for an elegant modern home on this compact sloped corner site in the Carlswald Lifestyle Estate, Midrand. The form and aesthetics of the house were driven by the need for distinct 'facade character' to accentuate the street corner location, as well as our clients specific style preferences. The compact footprint of the house allows for significant garden space for our clients green thumb.
Internally, our design solution allows for a simple functional arrangement of interlinked spaces with high ceilings and polished concrete floors. North facing clerestorey windows on the first floor allows for ample natural light into the bedrooms & pyjama lounge while providing privacy from the neighboring site.
Both the lounge and dining areas open completely to the outdoors to take advantage of the Highveld summers. A roof top patio with a steel & timber frame landscaped with creepers creates the ultimate outdoor entertainment lounge area in dappled sunlight.
