U-Shaped Modern Residence in Johannesburg Displaying Extravagant Features



SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects in collaboration with Antoni Associates completed an opulent modern home in Houghton, a wealthy suburb of Johannesburg in South Africa. Here is some information from the official press release we received: “The brief was to create a home for an extended Johannesburg family. Situated in Houghton on a gentle slope, the site is surrounded by trees and has views from the upper levels. The site was split into two separate sites organised around a common entrance and driveway providing access to both houses. 

The houses have a U-shaped configuration organized around an internal courtyard and allows access to all of the living spaces and the swimming pool. A perforated wall separates the public forecourt from the private spaces. Internally the spaces pivot around a central volume with a ribbon like spiral stair. The living spaces, kitchen and private garden are to the north, while the games room, pool and gym are to the west. All of these spaces connect to the courtyard which in turn connects back to the main house and its living spaces”. Looking forward to your firsthand impressions on the project!

    I drop a comment each time I like a article on a website or
    I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it is caused by the fire displayed
    in the article I read. And after this article U-Shaped

    I was moved enough to drop a thought :-) I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or do some of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you list all of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
