Designed ever so dramatically by Tierra Design the structure is placed on a podium of granite cobbled walls and uses a z-shaped pattern to ensure that every part of the four-level home gets an unabated view of the sea. The most striking and visually appealing feature of the Villa Mayavee is the way in which architects have used water to not just offer a beautiful variation but also as a reflective surface that accentuates the beauty of the estate.
The plan of the structure has a very open and airy feel to it with plenty of glass being used in an exaggerated fashion to ensure that there is a natural and flowing connectivity between every room and with the exterior as well. This also gives the JPGN Residence ample natural ventilation along with a feeling of freshness.
The wine cellar is intoxicatingly grand the gaming room conveniently placed to have loads of fun and the living room warmth and comfort galore. Offering both fun and privacy at the same time the opulence is never lost throughout.
The use of glass for this purpose has several benefits as it is easy to use retractable glass walls when compared to other materials thanks to their lighter weight but more importantly it only keeps the noise out while still giving visual access.
It is simply spellbinding when you see modern architects and designers pull out all the stops to create lavish homes that incorporate not just a great design but also amazing ergonomics. Glass stone and wood have been pretty much the materials of choice when it comes to creating fabulous contemporary homes that range from the warm and the welcoming to the minimalistic and magical. This astounding and extravagant U-shaped glass house located in Houghton Johannesburg is all about unabated opulence. Designed by SAOTA () along with Antoni Associates this home charms you with its transparent brilliance.
