House Duk Meyersdal by Nico van der Meulen Architects:
“The customers short was for a spacious residence that expressed its appreciation for outside residing. An open plan and practical home that lived out onto the backyard was of utmost significance to them. Consequently the style produced into a layout that encouraged this kind of a life style. With views to the backyard from practically each and every space, and massive residing regions that seamlessly flowed out onto the covered patio, this residence merges the thresholds among within and outside.
Gracefully positioned inside of a secured nature reserve that affords you the privilege of appreciating the comfort of outside living, this distinct home was inspired by its personal setting. Organic materials had been cautiously selected and strategically positioned all through the residence serving as gentle reminders of the serene place this house finds itself in. The assortment of components assisted in making sure the property blends in discreetly with its natural surroundings although earthy colors unify the web site with the home. Splashes of colour were utilized to liven the interior spaces with emphasis offered to textures and furnishings.
The idea integrated the thought of floating elements which resulted in distinctive features that distinguish this property as a Nico van der Meulen masterpiece. The concept is clear and evident from the moment you arrive as your focus is drawn to floating planes hovering over you, as if suspended in mid air. On closer inspection these planes appear to be the main roof construction which at 1st seemed to be a lot more of a decorative characteristic rather than a practical requirement. It is this very principle in style that creates stunning and sensible homes which turn out to be architectural works of ar2rk. Moving by way of the property and catching a glimpse of the floating staircase, you are drawn in by the transparency and openness of this residence. Escorted graciously by way of the residing spaces into the garden, you are when yet again introduced to what seems to be a floating block hovering in mid air which in reality is the main bedroom. The idea of floating elements was evident from every single viewpoint and vantage point producing sure this property often captivated your interest.
The site has a southern entry which was favorable in that it permitted for the total northern façade exactly where all the residing rooms are positioned to open up onto a personal north facing backyard. The site sloping upwards in the direction of the north also resulted in the garden obtaining to be stepped and terraced with gabion walls generating curiosity even in the landscaping.
Getting a garden that is on a diverse degree can frequently pose the dilemma of a disconnection between the covered patio and the pool/garden area. It was of utmost relevance to guarantee that the residence and garden still related and interacted as 1 room rather than 2 disconnected places. This was achieved by leveling the pool area and terracing the upper components of the backyard.
The greatest element of this layout is the way the entrance entices your curiosity with long stone cladded screen walls and once inside, the transparency and openness of this property that lies behind these strong entrance walls creates intriguing contrast.”
