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.
Each of the rooms flows into another giving one a sense of freedom while the use of lovely shades of wood and ambient lighting makes them warm and inviting. The décor and furnishings are sleek and modern while a refreshing pool offers you a chance to cool down in the evening.
If you thought that innovative modern design and architecture were limited to big cities then you would be in for a pleasant surprise when you visit the nearest little town or even countryside community next time. Home owners across the board are now opting for contemporary structures that not only offer great aesthetics but match the form with exquisite functionality.
Striking features like the wooden walls in the kitchen or the relaxing area and the wooden ceiling on the outside certainly kick it up a notch but it’s the warm atmosphere of the living room and all other spaces that gets to me for the Caruth Boulevard Residence.
Designed with a touch of elegance and timeless charm by Nelson-based studio Irving Smith Jack Architects this contemporary home stands between a refreshing pool area and a traditional farmhouse and form a lavish modern interlude.
