Forest Road Home by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects

Discover this stunning home designed by Rudolph Van Der Meulen of Nico Van Der Meulen Architects. Located in Inanda (South Africa), this eco-friendly home has a view of the Sandton skyline (the richest area in Africa).

Upon approaching the home the first view is of the cantilevered porte cochere screen of suspended steel tubes with double sliding garage doors clad in dark limestone to blend with the wall.    A steel sculpture by Regardt van der Meulen twirls on a podium next to the front door built of privacy glass. Upon entering the transparency of the house becomes evident with views out over the multilevel hall, lounge, spa and pool to the water feature and the garden beyond, as well as over the double volume family room, dining room, lanai and kitchen.  The whole of the living/kitchen/ breakfast area opens totally through the use of frameless concertina doors to the lanai and garden. – from the architects
