Rudolph van der Meulen of the South African architectural firm Nico van der Meulen Architects re-designed and renovated a single-storey house with an urban feel to substitute the 1950’s feel of the old house.
Eventually, House Mosi was converted into a timeless modern space with a unique flow.
The house is divided into public and private spaces by an internal water feature and a bridge that is used to enter the private areas of the home.
To honour the owner’s wish of an urban and open feel, the interior and exterior entertaining areas have been blurred by sliding stacking doors that open up the whole facade.
Focusing on creating a liveable, relevant and expressive home, the large interior planes were perfectly balanced through the use of specifically chosen furniture and artwork, which were all used as visual statements.
Natural wood elements articulate texture and depth; while essential to the welcoming ambience of the home, the correct styling enhances each room and brings the architectural design to a full and complete circle. The timeless grandeur of this home lies in its harmonious balance between warm textured finishes and vast neutral colour planes.
