Nico van der Meulen architects have designed the ‘House Abo’ in Limpopo, South Africa.
The size of the habitable area had doubled because of the challenging heat of Tropic of Capricorn. A natural cooling system was created by the numerous water features, the pool and the large expanses of opening glass which let the sun in only during winter.
House Abo presents double volume areas adorned with steel and glass, and a magnificent staircase highlighted by designer lighting, which elegantly connects the lower and the upper levels of the house.
The outside space with the pool is encapsulated by a timber wall which is beautifully lit and intentionally reflects into the black painted swimming pool.
The in-house interior design department, M Square Lifestyle Design, has taken care of the interior design, suggesting and obtaining creative and inspiring areas all over the house.
