Located in the upmarket Steyn City, the luxury residence was inspired by modern architecture. The Interior design and the architecture seek to complement one another.
The design embodies the unrealised potential of functional design within metaphysical conviction. With a large double volume atrium as the central space within the home, providing the connection, and conversely the separation, between the subsequent spaces, the design locates itself within the celebration of temporal and natural processes. The main living and private spaces open up completely to the exterior; whereby nature is welcomed; the lines separating outside and inside spaces are blurred, almost to the point where they become non-existent; the house itself opens to that which lies beyond its reach. The full scale glazing along the Northern facade allows the opportunity to celebrate the temporal transitions that take place within our daily lives; that which is deemed unimportant due to its regularity is given significance; that which is mundane is made divine by drawing ones attention to it: the transition between day and night, season to season, year to year, is given full hierarchy.
