Luxurious Residential Transformation Expanding Architectural Horizons

Brian Rd Designed by Nico and Rudolph van der Meulen 1 Luxurious Residential Transformation Expanding Architectural Horizons

Located in Johannesburg, the Brian Road Residence underwent extensive transformations that took the 1970s house to a contemporary level. Nico van der Meulen Architects imagined an atrium and moat surrounding the hall and dining room, while a water curtain falls past a cut-out in the atrium wall, shaping a breakfast garden to the east of the kitchen. The double-height living and dining space open to a spacious lanai extending the entertaining zone into the garden. Opulent social interiors adorned with Tom Dixon spherical copper lamps were divided into activity zones, creating an open floor plan combining family and entertaining possibilities. Luxury can be also recognized in the color choices: rich rust and copper hues meet bright natural light in a spectacular space arrangement. These modern South-African interiors were designed by M Square Lifestyle Necessities, who also transformed the private spaces into inviting indoor/outdoor splendors. Opening onto balconies and atriums, main bedrooms and bathrooms compete with the guest quarters, which lead out to the garden through frameless doors. A myriad of exceptional details compose this residential space, upgrading it to suit a luxurious 21st century lifestyle.

    An amazing project!..Love the large rectangular open windows that make you feel you leave in a garden somehow… it is an immense house! The wooden treated walls bring warmth and balance to the ultra modern design …. Well done!
