Contemporary Home in Pretoria
Nico Van Der Meulen Architects, a Johannesburg-based architectural studio. has completed this visually stunning home in Pretoria, South Africa. 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.
