Yet Another Glamourous Architecture Display in South Africa: Glass House
Glass House is an imposing residence designed by studio Nico Van Der Meulen Architects and located in Johannesburg, South Africa. The owners wanted a glamorous home, filled with light and strongly connected to its environment. With a total floor area of 2500 square meters, the residence meets its requests. According to the architects, “the shape on the south side is a half circle, forming a horseshoe on the north side. The porte cochere is a suspended glass and stainless steel structure, with view into the house and a stainless steel and glass staircase, suspended over a heated pond, (which in summer acts as a temperature stabilizer, and in winter as a giant heater) with a circular, raised glass water feature in the background, framed by a beam two storeys high”. The interiors of the Glass House are highly modern, with details that dazzle the mind. Have a look and tell us what you find most intriguing.
